She was born on October 30, 1933, to the union of Samuel and Daisy (Beck) Hazel in South Bend, Indiana. Carole was a beautiful soul inside and out. She loved her family and friends. This was very much apparent by the pictures she kept. Her family meant everything to her and she had no problem displaying that love and pride around her house in color and black and white. Family photos brought such joy to her heart. She loved to stay busy. She had hobbies that brought happiness to her and others around her. She loved to knit gifts for her family and friends. Also, she loved making dolls. When she wasn't endeavoring on adventures with her Best friend Jean, you could find her working on the next greatest puzzle. She loved taking on a challenge whether it was a puzzle or a road trip. Carol enjoyed every holiday but she absolutely loved Halloween. She enjoyed seeing the neighborhood kids and the creative costumes they would wear. She brought smiles to their faces as she handed out candy to them. Carol was warm and very inviting. She welcomed everyone with open arms. She loved people with all her heart. She lived life with such freedom and ease. She touched every person she came in contact with. She was loved and will be severely missed Those she leaves to cherish her memory are her children, Daniel (Jill) Aulhorn of South Bend; Lisa (Marty) VanKirk of Niles; Marla Aulhorn of Niles; four grandchildren, Ernie VanKirk of Niles; Mike (Wilma) VanKirk of Niles; Tabitha (Zach) Noland of Mishawaka; Marty Howard Jr. of Niles; along with several great-grandchildren.
