Cathy was preceded in death by her loving mother and father, Frank and Elsie Carroll. She is survived by her brother, Frank Carroll, Jr. and one aunt, Mary Bernhardt. Her special family includes her caretakers, Bob and Faye Valdiviez; and friends Sarah Marie Franklin, Chris and Jane Tegard, Joseph Baglio, German Benitez, Ray and Nancy Mechenbier, Carol Hammans, Daisy Williams, Mike and Winnie Wright of Omaha, Melissa Rowlett of Orlando,Fl., and Marcie Wynn of Casselberry, Fl.
