Carol Ann Fisher, 72, my beloved wife and soulmate of 50 years, passed away Thursday, March 12, 2020 after a courageous battle against leukemia. Carol was born May 27, 1947 in Canton, to Elton and Annabelle (Miller) Kinsley – their first child. She resided in and around Hartville most of her younger years before moving to Medina in March of 1969.
We met in August of 1969 while she was employed at the Red Barn Restaurant and have been together ever since. Carol and I were married on June 12, 1972 by Judge Carroll B. McClure.
Carol held many jobs in her working years including Assistant Manager at the Red Barn; Department Manager at W.T. Grants; Telephone Operator at General Telephone; Showroom Manager and Photographer at Aztec Imports; Department Manager at Best Buy; and for 20 years at the Pat Catan’s warehouse in Strongsville where she was employed as their first female Warehouse Supervisor. Carol retired from Pat Catan’s in 2014.
Carol always had a smile and kind word for everyone she met, even strangers. She had a beautiful smile, musical laugh, warm brown eyes and a loving personality. She was very spiritual with a loving soul and she studied and taught Astrology, Numerology and other Metaphysical sciences and enjoyed setting up at Psychic Fairs, where she was known as the Angel Card Lady.
Carol enjoyed spending our time together, vacationing in Florida, spending time with her family, crocheting, enjoying our cats, reading, watching TV, playing online solitaire and life in general. She believed in living each day to the utmost.
Carol is survived by her husband, Richard; beloved cat, Leo; treasured twin sons, Daniel (Joni) Stafford and David (Missy) Stafford, both of Tennessee; brothers, Thomas (Heather) Kinsley of West Salem, Mike Kinsley of Lodi and Edward (Brandy) Bitting of Lodi; sisters, Kathy Kinsley of Wooster and Terri Bryan of Strongsville; five grandchildren; seven great-grandchildren; numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts and uncles who will always miss her.
According to her wishes, Carol will be cremated and her ashes interred in the Western Reserve National Cemetery in Seville.
