Carol W. Byers, 65, of Lancaster, PA died Friday, June 13, 2014 after a valiant battle with cancer. Born in Lancaster, she was the daughter of the late Clyde M. and Ethel Falk Whitaker. She was the loving wife of John W. Byers to whom she had been married for 45 years.

Carol was a graduate of J.P. McCaskey High School. After graduation, she was a legal secretary for Armstrong World Industries.

Always active in her children’s activities, she served as Girl Scout leader and President of PTO when her daughters were in school. She served as a health room and cafeteria aide at the elementary schools of Manheim Twp. School District.

She was a Sunday school teacher and choir member at Trinity Lutheran Church, and more recently, past treasurer of St. Matthew Lutheran Church.

For a time Carol worked as a decorator at Dannemann’s Fabric Store. She was a past president of Lancaster Area Sewing Network, and member of Red Rose Quilters and Embroiders Guilds. She was past owner of Carol’s Creativity.

Her hobbies include: crafts of all types, scrapbooking, sewing, quilting, gardening, vacationing at Ocean City, NJ and spending time with her family. She received her greatest joy by having the opportunity to help care for her grandsons from the time they were 8 weeks old.

Some people accept the world as it is; others try to make a difference. Carol left this world a better place.

In addition to her husband, she is survived by her two daughters, Kimberly, wife of Michael Herr of Lititz, PA and Jennifer, wife of Jason Kopp of Dallastown, PA and her beloved grandsons, Thomas and Nicholas Herr and Justin and Jackson Kopp.

Condolences for the family of “Carol W. Byers”

Condolence from Thomas and Darlene Stauffer on June 17th, 2014 8:52 am

We were so very sorry to hear about Carol. We were not aware that she was dealing with cancer. She was a very lovely person. We enjoyed the times we spent with her and John at their summer picnics, also when we all gather at Don and Carol Miller’s picnics. I shared a common bond with Carol as we each had a grandchild that had peanut issues. It was an added bonus in my life knowing Carol. We regret that we will not be able to attend the services. We will be in WV.
The Lord is blessed with a new Angel. Amen

Dear John and family,

My deepest sympathy on Carol’s passing, John. From our years at McCaskey through the chance meetings at Stauffers or other locales around town, Carol remained a warm, friendly, cheerful person with whom it was a pleasure to chat. I hope your loving memories will comfort you and ease the pain of her far too early loss to you and your family.

with kindest regards,

Condolence from The Nissleys on June 18th, 2014 5:57 am

Dear John and Family,
You have lost a beautiful and talented angel. I met Carol the Spring of 1963 and were fooling for something to do for the Summer. Her Mom suggested that we enroll with the Red Cross and become volunteer Candy Stripers. Carol realized early on that this was not for her but for this was the beginning of a long career in nursing.
Her being will be with you always.
