Carol was wed to Robert (Bob) Zedlitz on August 24, 1962 in Reno, Nevada while on a trip to California and started their married lives together for the next 60 years.
Prior to raising her two children, Carol taught first grade. She was a devoted wife and caring mother. She built life-long friendships through her love of golf at Castlewood Country Club, her bridge club, and dedication to her faith and church groups.

Carol is survived by her loving husband Bob, and devoted children Bob Zedlitz (Mattie) of Stockton, CA and Jean Zedlitz of Livermore, CA.
