Carole Marie Emerick passed away Tuesday, October 8,2019, in her home in Lancaster,
California. She was 81 years old. Born in Huntingdon, Pennsylvania on November 29, 1939,
the daughter of Loretta and Lloyd Emerick and sister of Joanne and Don. She was the middle
child, quiet and shy, always avoiding the camera. Carole was a loving soul and friendly to all.

Carole's early years were mostly spent growing up with her sister, Joanne, in Irwin, Pennsyl-
vania. She attended elementary school in Irwin and continued her education in Los Angeles,
California. While Carole was growing up the family made several moves to Los Angeles and
back to Irwin. Finally settling in Los Angeles in the early fifties. By this time Carole was
attending John Muir junior high and went on to graduate from Manual Arts high school in Los

Carole was a loving daughter, sister, cousin, aunt and friend. Her devotion to the Catholic
religion was very strong. At one point in her life she was considering to dedicate her life to God
by joining a convent. Her rosary was always close at hand to say a quick decade or two or even
all five no matter where ever she was. Religion was her private sanctuary from the world.

The majority of Carole's life was being a family caregiver. First to help her mom when her dad
was bed ridden from a stroke and then providing total care for her mom. Strong in times of need,
steadfast and understanding. An avid reader of spiritual and current materials. She was a woman
of strong religious beliefs and convictions, loyal and loving to family and friends. Carole lived her
later years as she wanted, never wanting to be a burden to anyone. She was one of a kind and
will be missed but will live on in our hearts and memories forever.

Carole was preceded in death by: her father, Lloyd Emerick, her mother, Loretta Emerick of
Lancaster, CA and her sister, Joanne Tarbell and husband Ken of Show Low, Arizona.
Carole is survived by: her brother, Don Emerick and wife Tina of Atascadero, CA
Nieces and nephews: Irene Tarbell of Surprise, AZ and her children Kristine and Sara Tarbell,
Mike and Luanne Tarbell of Hotchkiss, CO, Monica Storch and husband, Jeff of New York, NY
and their children Sadie and Ben, Danielle Emerick and husband Matt Bellanger of Pasadena,
Cousins: Rose Maish and husband Chuck of Lancaster, CA and their daughters Anna and
Pat Nelson and her husband Dick of Big Bear City and their children.

Rosemary Maish

To my cousin Don, from cousin Rose. My heart is heavy for our many close losses, when loosing both sister's so close in time, remember you are not alone, your family holds on and keeps going, Carole will be missed, but I know she is smiling, she walked her journey with no complaints only with faith, when I pray I will ask for her intersession along with my favorite Saints, because she and my brother Dennis, her cousin and yours are both in that highest esteem to me. So our memories of Carole should be of honor to have been a brother and a cousin to her. Not many could carry this journey with a smile. I always will remember when she would say oh Rosemary, and then ask how is Patty, this is her cousin. So when you feel you need some Irish McHale's
You just call our names and we will come running, maybe a slow walk better yet. I left you a picture of Carole I was sitting next to her on the couch that day, but someday you will see the whole picture of us. My ❤️to all my Emerick cousins.
God Bless, Rosemary
