Carol Sue (Sherrard)
Bushore, age 74 of Chesterton, IN, passed away on Wednesday, June 12, 2019,
at her home.
She was born on
July 24, 1944 in Gary, IN, to Clifford and Helen (Rosebery) Sherrard.
Carol is survived
by her husband of over 35 years, Stephen; two sons, Stephen W. (Julie)
Bushore, Richard (Kathy) Teffertiller; daughter, Michelle Bement;
grandchildren, Samantha, Mariah, Faith, Michael, Madison; and
great-grandchildren, Paxton, Roman and Porter; one brother, Clifford (Kathy)
She was preceded in
death by her parents; and brother, Ronald Sherrard.
As a child, Carol
grew up in Hobart with two older fun-seeking brothers, while she would be
found experiencing her own world by sitting under that large oak tree
reading her many novels. She retired from Ticor Title Insurance Company as a
Title Officer where she enjoyed the many get togethers and camaraderie of
her many fellow employees. Carol and her husband spent many years wintering
in Pawleys Island, SC. She enjoyed working in her flower gardens, playing
cards, baking, crocheting and sitting on the peaceful back porch enjoying
her morning coffee while reading those many novels. She had a terrific sense
of humor and loved a good laugh. She was a kind hearted, caring, level
headed, loving wife, mother, and grandmother who held the respect of
everyone that she came in contact with, but none more than her family.
Carol's wishes were
that her cremains be contained with those of her "Buddy" Riley and Mandy so
that she could forever enjoy their companionship.
The family wishes
to thank the many friends that have had her in their thoughts and prayers
during this difficult period, the many caregivers, and especially Daana and
Juanita, whose personal care Carol valued most.
In lieu of flowers
the family has requested that those who wish may make donations in her honor
to The Porter County Animal Shelter, Attn: Toni Bianchi, 3355 Berthelot
Blvd., Valparaiso, IN 46383.
The family will be
holding a Celebration of Carol's life at a later date.
handled by Edmonds & Evans Funeral Home, 517 Broadway, Chesterton, in 46304.
