Carol (Smith) Stevens of Sylvania, OH passed away on the morning of Aug 31st. She was born to the late Donald and Mary (Gerrie) Smith in Ft. Sill, OK on October 1, 1951.

Carol was an avid fan of Ohio State football and loved both the Summer and Winter Olympics. In retirement, she enjoyed being a volunteer reader at Hawkins Elementary School and was also a regular participant at Wildwood’s aqua aerobics.
