Carol Boller

November 14, 1950 ~ July 19, 2018 (age 67)

Carol Anne Boller 67, of Mahomet passed away peacefully on Thursday July 19th at home surrounded by her husband and two daughters.  She fought a courageous battle against cancer.

There will be a visitation on Tuesday, July 24 from 4-7 pm at Mahomet United Methodist Church, 1302 E South Mahomet Road, Mahomet. A memorial service will be held on Wednesday, July 25 at 10 am at the church. Burial will be private. 

She was born November 14th 1950 in Champaign to Don H. Miebach and Harriett .L  Miebach.  She married her lifetime love, Lawrence (Bud) Boller II on September 20th 1969 in a beautiful country church.   Bud survives along with their two daughters Martha Boller-Saha (Shambo) and Linda Boller (Shannon Bridges). Her life was dedicated to her grandchildren Damion Boller and Finleigh Boller-Bridges.

Carol is also survived by her older sister, Linda Smith and younger brother, Don Miebach.  She has many chosen siblings Bonnie, Cindy, Jodi, Pam and many more.   She loved her nieces and nephews as her own, including Timothy Smith (Angie) and their two kids Troy and Addison. She was most happy when her house was “home” to all of them.  

Carol was preceded in death by her father; Father-in-law, Lawrence Boller I; Mother-in-Law, Eleanor Boller and her maternal and fraternal grandparents.   

Carol was a shining example of what a caring and loving person should be.  She had an incredible sense of humor and the most unique laugh.   She married the love of her life having countless times of fun and adventures.   Her devotion and love of family and friends was so immense that everyone near and far felt it.  She was so proud of her daughters and their spouses.   She had a  legion of friends who will greatly miss her. 

Girl Scouts were very close to Carol’s heart.  Carol was a Girl Scout leader with the Green Meadows Girl Scout Council.  During that time, she was responsible for the change from Girl Scout leaders paying for supplies and costs for their troop to the Girl Scout Council absorbing the costs.  This policy change allowed everyone, regardless of income, to participate in Girl Scouts.

Carol was active in the Mahomet Town and Country Women’s Club including a term as President.  Carol served terms as Vice-President and President of the Mahomet Music Boosters.  During her tenure, the Mahomet Seymour Band appeared in the Fiesta Bowl Parade as well as the King Kamchameha Parade.

Carol was church secretary at the Mahomet United Methodist Church serving with Rev Dave Goodell and Rev Keith Zimmerman.  She continued to serve as bookkeeper on a volunteer basis for years.  She was also a Sunday School teacher and assisted with the Jr and Sr High youth groups.

Carol had a great love of theme parties and was always in the planning stages for the next one.  Other activities she enjoyed were scrapbooking, jewelry making, bowling, playing games, going to the movies and spending time with her cherished grandchildren.

Carol was co-owner with her husband in a small Mahomet business. 

She will be deeply missed by every one that knew her and her infectious laugh and welcoming smile.
