Obituary of Carolyn Reed

Carol would like to let you know that her work here is done.  Her new assignment comes with a huge sign-on bonus, a reunion with family, and friends not seen in a long time. Her Heavenly Father loves her more than you can ever imagine. Her new mission takes her to a wonderful place where the Cubs win every game, pinochle, nickel & dime poker, 31 are ready for play, and she can talk directly to her Creator anytime she wants. It’s a beautiful gated community, everyone is friendly, the food is delicious, and you never gain an ounce. She left detailed instructions for Harold, and her children to celebrate her mission here, which has now been completed.

Carolyn Joan Reed was born August 3, 1937, passed away June 8, 2017 surrounded by her family. She will be greatly missed by her loving husband, Harold W. Reed, sons Mark Reed, and wife Marian, Michael F. Reed, and wife Charla. Grandchildren: Marshall, and wife Nellie, Meredith, Matthew, Michael H., Molly, Christopher, and Adam. Sister, Connie Concutelli, brother, Wiley and wife Tammy Biggers Jr., and sister-in-law, Marilyn Reed Dziama and Husband John. Great grandchildren: Carter, Peyton, Kaylee, and Kate Reed; nieces, nephews, and friends who dearly loved her. She is preceded in death by her parents Wiley and Helen Biggers, and brother-in-law, Lauro Concutelli.

Harold & Carol met in at East High School in Rockford, IL in 1955. Their first date was at the Rockford Peaches game, and they were together ever since. Upon graduation Dad enlisted in the Airforce, and retuned from boot camp to marry Carol on June 10th 1956. Harold was the only boy Carol ever kissed, and they lived faithfully together for 61 years. Harold, and Carol were faithful members of State Street Baptist in Rockford, Illinois and at Memorial Drive Baptist Church.
