Carole L. Straub, 85, of Fairlawn, Ohio was surrounded by love and family as she passed away on Friday, March 24, 2023 at the Justin T. Rogers Hospice Care Center, in Akron, from complications of a massive stroke.

Carole was born in Wooster, Ohio in 1937 to Donald H. and Lois (Keister) Straub. She was the Prom Queen and graduate of the Wooster High School Class of 1955. Carole was a lifelong animal lover having had horses, many dogs, cats, and birds throughout her life. Her family was the most important thing to her. She loved reading, watching movies, and getting her nails done. Her love of dark chocolate and Drumsticks will be remembered by all who loved her.

She was a loving Mother, Grammy, and Great Grammy. She leaves to mourn her passing her children Amy (Salvatore) Carrino, Julie Miller, Jeff Mann (Sue Centea), and Sheryl (Karen) Mann; her 8 grandchildren (of whom she enjoyed spending time with) Caitlin (John) Poalson, Gina Carrino, Erica (Jason) Holl, Emily (Andrew) Schott, Adam (Heather) Laliberte, Jessica (Brent) Worthing, Samantha Laliberte (Cory Benkowski), and Maxwell (Aubrey) Miller. She was also blessed with 8 great-grandchildren, and a ninth on the way; her sister Cynthia (Straub) Amstutz of Alpharetta, GA; and her first husband, and father of her four children, John S. Mann of Perrysville, whom she met while he was attending the College of Wooster.

Carole was preceded in death by her second husband, whom she had been divorced from, G. Michael Shannon.

Per Carole’s wishes, there will be no formal services. She was laid to rest privately at Wooster Cemetery next to her mother and father.

She resided at Brookdale Montrose for many years and was very thankful for the care and sense of community provided by so many there.

McIntire, Bradham & Sleek Funeral Home, 216 E. Larwill St., Wooster is assisting the family.
