Carole A. Foreman, 75, Woodstock

Carole A. Foreman, 75, Woodstock, died Wednesday, March 2, 2016, peacefully in the comfort of her own home. 

She was born Dec. 10, 1940, to Fred and Velma (Bird) Pope in Woodstock.  

On Dec. 2, 1985, she married James Foreman in Las Vegas. 

She was a member of Grace Lutheran Church, Woodstock, and Women of the Moose Lodge No 1329. She was a homemaker most of her life and recently retired as a bus aide for Woodstock School District 200. While working as a bus aide, she looked forward to helping special-needs children. 

She was a woman full of life and enjoyed nothing more than spending time with her beloved children and granddaughters. Her granddaughters were her pride and joy, and she made sure to never miss anything going on in their lives. Her sense of sarcasm never stopped and left everyone with a smile. 

Survivors include her husband; a daughter, Deborah Fischer, Johnsburg; two sons, Donald (Donna) Fischer and David “Fish” Fischer, both of Woodstock; three granddaughters, Ashleigh and Morgan Sahs, Johnsburg, and Shawna (Chris) William, Tennessee; a great-granddaughter, Grace Williams; and a brother, Robert (Nancy) Pope of Woodstock. 

She was preceded in death by her parents and a brother, Fred (Helen) Pope.

Visitation and funeral were March 7  at Schneider-Leucht-Merwin & Cooney Funeral Home, Woodstock. The Rev. Ken Gibson officiated.  Interment was private in the McHenry County Memorial Park, Woodstock.

Memorials can be made to the American Diabetes Association.
