Carol, daughter of Clarence and De-Lores Backer, was born July 1, 1940, in Randolph. She grew up in the Randolph community where she attended and graduated from St. Francis High in 1958.
Carol Ann Backer married Gordon Bailey Hubenthal Oct. 12, 1959, at the Catholic Church in Randolph. The couple were blessed with two daughters. Carol was a cherished wife, mother and grandmother and loved by everybody that knew her. She blessed her family with continuous loving care, wonderful meals, the best Holiday celebrations and many adventures. Among Carol’s greatest loves other than her family, especially her grandson, Jordan, was gardening,. She was well known for her huge, beautiful geraniums. Between Hoop’s, her husband, landscaping skills and her green thumb, their back yard was a paradise year round. Carol also treasured many family pets, who were lucky to be in her care. Most recently she lost her faithful pup, Bailey Rose, who was beside her at her community until Aug. 25, 2017. She also enjoyed floral designing, crafts, crocheting, baking and making wedding dresses, with exquisite beading. For those who knew her, she was truly an angel, and we can all now say we were touched by an Angel.
