Chicago Sun-Times - - NATION / WORLD -

Carol Salzwedel passed away with fam­ily by her side on Wed­nes­day Au­gust 19, 2020 at the age of 78 years.

She will be lov­ingly re­mem­bered by her chil­dren, John Ben­do­raitis, Fred Salzwedel, Ni­jole Jack­son, her nephew Daryl Fuhri, her 4 grand­chil­dren Al­li­son, Emily, In­dra and Lukas, and 7 great grand­chil­dren Ade­lyn, Ly­dia, Ben­jamin, Leo, Es­ther, Liam and Elina.

She was pre­de­ceased by her lov­ing hus­band of 31 years, Erv Salzwedel, four sib­lings, Pa­tri­cia “Pat”, Shirley, Robert “Bob”, and Ron­ald “Ron” Fuhri, and her two older half sib­lings, Charles “Chuck” and Lu­cille “Cille” Fuhri whose mother, Agnes Hughes, passed dur­ing child­birth.

Carol was born on Septem­ber 26, 1941 in Chicago, Illi­nois. She spent many of her for­ma­tive years liv­ing with her half sis­ter, Lu­cille, and Lu­cille’s fam­ily. When she was a teen, she moved in with her other sib­lings and at­tended Vis­i­ta­tion High School. In ad­di­tion to her stud­ies, Carol was an out­stand­ing vol­ley­ball and soft­ball player and a beau­ti­ful dancer. She was also ac­tive in the drama club and was a mem­ber of St. David’s Teen Club. Carol and Erv mar­ried on July 23rd, 1966 and later be­came the own­ers of “A Col­lec­tors Mar­ket” where she flour­ished in the trade of an­tiques. Carol found im­mense joy in spend­ing qual­ity time with her loved ones and made it a point to see them as often as pos­si­ble. She was a de­vout Chris­tian and con­sid­ered Maranatha Bap­tist Church her sec­ond fam­ily.

Car­ols in­fec­tious smile and kind­ness brought love, hap­pi­ness, and joy into the lives of all those around her. Carol will be sorely missed but her mem­ory will last a life­time in the hearts of all those whom she touched.
