Carol Jean Zaiser


Carol, Gary and family joined Our Redeemer Lutheran Church in Newark, DE in January 1965 and were active members there for 45 years. Carol taught Sunday School for many years, was a teacher’s aide for eleven years in Our Redeemer Kindergarten and Pre-school, was Chairperson of the Altar Guild and leader of the group making sleeping bags for the homeless. Carol also enjoyed sewing (counted cross-stitch), playing bridge and watching all forms of sports. In December 2009 they moved to Maris Grove in Glen Mills, PA and transferred back to Concordia Lutheran Church in Wilmington.

Carol and Gary have been blessed with a wonderful family: David, Tom and Nancy, their spouses: Katherine Hober, Kelly Herron and David Cordrey; and six grandchildren: Adam, Hayden, Logan, Claire, Andrew and her namesake, Caroline Jean.

Left to cherish her memory include her husband of 55 years; children and grand children: a sister, Mary Davis of Clinton; a sister-in-law and brother-in-law: Billie and Harlan Geerdes of Hartley, IA; and nieces, nephews and cousins.
