Carol J. Winslow, 90, of Parsons passed away on Monday, February 6, 2023 at Parsons Presbyterian Manor. In recent years she had lived with Parkinson’s disease.
She was born December 31, 1932 in Cherryvale, the fifth child of Elsie Mae (Hucke) and Harry Franklin Winslow. The family eventually moved to Parsons, where Carol graduated from Parsons High School and then Parsons Junior College with a bachelor’s degree.
She spent the rest of her life in Parsons, working as a secretary at the Bill Dearth Insurance Company and later as a home health worker in and around the city. It was noted that she was “exceptionally reliable in providing services to her clients”. She attended Open Bible Church in Parsons and Mount Zion Church in Cherryvale.
Carol’s remarkable memory and authentic personality added to the fun and joy at family reunions and vacations. She was a shining light to the six nieces and eight nieces she loved dearly and to all of her siblings who had preceded her in her death. She loved to cook and was thrilled when she received a birthday message from celebrity chef Joanne Weir.
Carol is survived by her sister-in-law, Nora Maye Kramer Winslow of Parsons; eight grandchildren, Steve Hilding of Sacramento, California, John Winslow of Denver, Colorado, Bill Winslow of Adelaide, Australia, Joseph Winslow of Topeka, Michael Winslow of Colorado Springs, Colorado, Randy Stoll of Fullerton, California, Jeff Stoll of Yorba Linda, California, and Mark Winslow of Denver, Colorado; and five grandchildren, Marilyn Winslow of San Rafael, California, Judy Molinary of Dallas, Texas, Barbara Cook of Overland Park, Jayne Winslow of Cape Cod, Massachusetts, and Rebecca Smith of Tulsa, Oklahoma.
A memorial service will be announced at a later date.
The family suggests memorials to the Presbyterian Manor Good Samaritan Fund at Parsons Presbyterian Manor. These memorials may be left or mailed to Carson-Wall Funeral Home, 112 N. 26th St., PO Box 942, Parsons, KS, 67357.
The manor’s care and support for Carol over the years is greatly appreciated by friends and family.
