Carol Ellen (Schlieder) Reese

October 26, 1945 ~ July 8, 2020 (age 74)


Carol Ellen Schlieder Reese, 74, Born 26 October 1945, Joined her Heavenly Father on 8 July 2020. A visitation with memorial service will held on Wednesday, July 15, 2020 from 5 to 7pm at Fry~Smith Funeral Home, Tuscola, directed by Fry~Smith Funeral Home, Tuscola. A private family burial will follow.

Carol is survived by her Husband of fifty-five years, Fredrick Reese, and their five children, George, Jenny, John and (Sarah), Mary and (Stephen) Mock, Rebecca and (Jason) Geelan, seven grandchildren, Chelsey, Leo, Ty, Christian, Jacob, Samual, Luke, and one great grandchild Mckayla. Carol and Fred taught us what love was!

Carol was a wonderful caring mother and wife. She loved to have long conversations with anyone who would talk with her. She loved sewing, crocheting, knitting, and bird watching! She was lovingly known as Dr. Mom, she could help with almost any medical problem! She was always willing to help anyone she could however she could. She always found a way to encourage you when you were down, or hurting, or when you got frustrated with your school work. She may not have grown up in Texas, but she sure did love Texas! Whether it was ranching, exploring, or having big family gatherings.

Carol was so intelligent and knowledgeable. If She didn't know the answer to a question you know she was sure to find it out. To us kids though she knew everything, but I suppose most kids think that about their moms.

Carol was a medical transcriptionist for over thirty years.

Carol is loved by so many and she will be dearly missed. We know she is with Heavenly father, her mother and father, Teddy and Carl, her granddaughter, Kyla, Pa (Claude) and Ma (Florence) Mayfield’s family... We will see her again one day!

In lieu of flowers donations can be made to a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) of choice.
