Carol Higgins Obituary

Carol Ann Higgins, beloved Wife, Sister, Aunt, and Grandmother, 74 years old, passed away peacefully on October 20, 2023.

Carol was a loving, devoted wife, grandmother, sister, step-mom, aunt, and friend to the many people that were blessed to be part of her life.  She was a hard working and dedicated worker that spent many years at Daytons and Schuler shoes as a manager.  She was a creative seamstress who loved traveling, camping, cooking, gardening, birdwatching,  celebrating winter carnival, and entertaining in the backyard shed with her amazing neighbors.  Her favorite places to travel were the North Shore, Ireland, and anywhere that Mick was.  

She was a shining light that loved us with all her heart and because of that we are forever grateful for the time we had with her.

Carol is survived by her loving husband, Mick Higgins, Brother Gerald (Oona), Benjamin (Marsha) Grandchildren Milo (Mother Michelle) and Finley (Mother Katie); brothers in law Frank (Linda), Carl (Karen), David (Julie), and many nieces and nephews.

Carol is preceded in death by her parents Elmer and Clarice Lanahan, Step-son Shane Clifton, very special aunt Florence, siblings Marie, Bill, Diane, and Dorothy.
