  • Elda My deepest condolences to the Roberts family, may you find comfort in prayer and the beautiful words of Revelation 21:3,4 where God promises us that He will soon eliminate all death and suffering.
  • Steven Lange Dave and Carol together in love and happy. That was my last memory of them before I moved from Illinois and headed west. It was a family gathering at Aunt Alma and Uncle Clerances home. Her glowing smile, wit and wisdom will be with me always. I'm so happy I had the opportunity to reconnect with her and Dave a few years ago. I miss her now but will never, ever forget her. She lives on in the hearts and minds of those who knew her best. Sympathy to all her family and friends.
  • Reva Wacker Some weeks have now passed since we no longer have Carole. I miss her so much. For years we didn't see or talk to each other. Because Carole cared so much about family she reached out to me. I'm so grateful she did. We found so many similarities cousin to cousin. Mostly our love of flowers & baking. We shared many recipes. Carole taught me how to find & grow flowers from seeds left behind after the flowers had seen another season go by the wayside. Dave was her rock & she became mine when my husband of 50+ years passed away in 2016. Carole was always available to me for conversation & support. In the end I regretted so many years had been wasted; never thinking her life would be cut so short. Carole had a big heart; I'm just grateful she was able to share it with me. Carole, I'll be seeing you again someday. In the meantime, say hi to Rich for me. I love you & miss you!! Fondly, "Sister Cousin Reva"
  • David Lange Carole is my cousin, and also the big sis I never had. I am more like her than I ever knew, farewell Carole, may we meet again one sunny day.
  • Carol Marshall Carole was a dear singing colleague in CMS for many years. I appreciated her dedication to the group and her marvelous organizational skills. I was personally blessed many times by her encouragement. Prayers of comfort and peace for her family.
  • Alan Heatherington Carole was indeed a founding member of the Chicago Master Singers, and her spirit always will be present as the chorus continues to flourish. When we celebrate our 40th anniversary next season, Carole will be remembered for her dedicated service in the early years, her faithful work as a board member and her passionate love of singing. Her life challenges have been many and her passing saddens all of us. Our prayers and love remain with Dave and the entire family.
  • Kimberlee McLean Carole was one of my first contacts at CMS as the membership coordinator (back in 2017). A very gracious lady with a great love of music, singing, and singers. She will be sorely missed but now has joined the heavenly chorus in the Alto angel section.
