Carol Bernice Poisson

LAKE LINDEN — Carol Bernice Poisson, 77, passed away at Lakeview Assisted Living, surrounded by her loving daughters, on January 2, 2021.

Carol was born on January 7, 1943, the daughter of Armas and Bernice (Jarvala) Olli. She was raised in Tamarack City and attended Dollar Bay High School. Carol was united in marriage to Wayne C. Poisson on October 15, 1960, and together the couple made their home in Lake Linden, where they raised their three daughters; Wanita, Terry, and Renee. In 2003, Wayne and Carol moved to Gladstone to be closer to family. Her loving husband, Wayne, proceeded her in death in August 2016.

As a result of Carol’s generous spirit and pleasant personality, she was loved by many. Her Christian life was as beautiful as the flowers that she loved so well, and her influence will forever remain in the lives of all who knew and loved her. Carol’s life was centered around her family and she cherished time spent with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. In her life she enjoyed listening to traditional country music, her beautiful flower gardens, hummingbirds, and peaceful settings.

Carol’s beautiful life will forever be cherished in the lives of her daughters: Wanita (Chuck) Panza of Florence, Arizona, Terry (Tom) Visser of Vicksburg, Michigan and Renee (Paul) Lundberg of Gladstone; grandchildren Sarai, Levi, Kayli, Eliyah, Aili, Austin, Heidi and Andrew, and ten great-children with another on the way.

Carol is also survived by her sisters and best friends Marlene of Gladstone and Raynelle (Dave) Pechawer of Escanaba.

Carol was preceded in death by her parents and brother Amras Jr. (Sonny).

Visitation for Carol B. Poisson will be Monday, January 11, from 3 to 4 p.m., at the Crawford Funeral Home with the funeral service to follow at 4 p.m. A graveside service for both Carol and Wayne will be held in the spring at Fernwood Cemetery in Gladstone.

Special thank-you to the staff at Lakeview Assisted Living and Beth from OSF Hospice, for the loving support and care given to our mother.
