Accomplishing much in her 68 years of life, Carol Fishman enjoyed living in the light of spring. She relished in the joys that life brought and was eager to share her enthusiasm and joy with so many others.
She loved the outdoors, wildlife, nature, hiking, exploring, camping, music and especially loved gardening and horseback riding.
Some of her accomplishments include graduating Magna Cum Laude as a Churchill Scholar at Southern Oregon University in 1993, and diplomas from Bernadean University and the Dr. Christopher School of Natural Healing in Utah as a Master Herbalist.
Her life ended as unexpectedly as a passing springtime rain. Carol died in her home on the fourth Tuesday of April, 2010, to return to her Lord and Savior. She still had so much living to do.
Carol evoked joy, humor, and happiness all around her. And though she was working through her own storms in life, she was always willing to reach out to others and show her caring by sharing something rich and rare—herself. She inspired so many and took time to be there for people who needed a boost, a helping hand, or simply an ear to listen.
She was committed in her work to help the community, the Upper Rogue Watershed Association, and was always looking for creative ways to solve problems.
She will be surely missed by her beloved husband Roger, her children Barry James and Rebecca Jean, and her grandchildren—Crystal and Ozzy and great grandchildren, Natalia, Rylee, and Karson. Carol’s dear friends to the end were Karen, Lola, Kim, Severina, and Joyce. Her family and friends were a blessing in life and were there for her to the end.
Her husband Roger, family and friends would like you to join them on Sunday, June 13 at 2:00 p.m. at McGregor Park (mile marker 29, Hwy 62 adjacent to the fish hatchery below Lost Creek Lake—look for signs).
If you are one of the special people who had an opportunity to know and love Carol, your presence would be a blessing to her and her family.
