Carol A. Mede
Carol Ann Mede, 58, passed away on Tuesday, September 3, 2019 after a 19 month battle with pancreatic cancer. She had a positive attitude throughout her treatment and saw joy in each day. Family and friends were very dear to Carol, and she treasured the simple gift of togetherness.

She regularly attended St. Gilbert Parish, and volunteered countless hours at St. Gilbert School as well.
