Dave, Roger, and Susan, What a wife and mother Carol was. It was a privilege working for Maurer Farms from 5th grade through college. I received an education from working on the farm far greater than any college degree. Carol was a big part of that education. Of course Dave contributed greatly also. Carol was always telling me to think and be safe during the work day. Farms can be dangerous and Carol made sure that was always in my head. Hard work was the trademark of the Maurer family, and that was reinforced everyday and continued to benefit me throughout my working career.

God blessed your family and many many others with her. Rest in peace Carol, job well done!

Dear Roger, Susan, and Dave- I am so sad to hear of Carol's passing. What a joy and privilege it was to work alongside Carol for many years at your family farm. We had many laughs together and she was great to have as one of my first bosses. I enjoyed coming back to the Maurer farm throughout my years away from Wooster and always being warmly greeted by Carol- she always asked how I was, where I was, and how may family was. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this time of sadness and loss.

Dave and Family, we were so sorry to hear of Carols passing.
Sending sincere sympathy. Keeping you in our prayers.

Roger and Susan - I'm so sorry about your mother's passing. I have so found memories from years of picking strawberries at your farm while growing up. I always try to get Mauer's strawberries or corn on the cob when in Wooster. She always greeted me warmly. Condolences to you and your families.

Susan, I am so sorry for your loss. You and your family are in my prayers.

Susan,

Wishing you and your family peace and strength. You are in my prayers.

Carol was such a lovely person. Worked so hard.

Dave, Roger, and family. My condolences to you and your family. I've known Carol even before starting my career at the stores 45 years ago. She left an impression of a very hard-working person, not unlike all the family working on the Maurer farm. She will be missed

I was so sad to see the passing of Carol! She was like a 2nd mother to me! From picking berries, to pick your own, working the garage and even babysitting you kids! She taught me a lot and I will never forget her! She was the glue that got us all thru the day and was loved by many!

Mr. Maurer, Roger, Susan and family,
I am saddened by the news about Mrs. Maurer’s passing. You will never know how grateful I am, to have known and worked for you all. Mrs. Maurer was so kind to me and I had great respect for her. Heaven has received another wonderful soul to begin eternity with our creator and savior. My prayers for comfort, peace and understanding during this difficult time.
Respectfully and in love,
Kurt

Dear Dave, Roger and family. I am very sorry for your loss of Carol. I did not know her well, but was always impressed by her helpfulness and generosity whenever I was on the farm. May God bless you all at this time. Doug Doohan
