Carol J. Yelle, 63 of Wilmington passed away October 13, 2010
at New Hanover Regional Medical Center.
Carol was born on November 18, 1946, in Burlington, VT, to the late Donald and Jeanette (Ramsey) Ritchie. Carol survived breast cancer twice, proof that her strength and willpower were relentless. She was a warm and endearing person with an abundance of love to give. She touched everyone that she met with her beautiful smile and sparkling eyes. Carol was a devoted mother and grandmother who always put the people she loved before herself. Her sense of humor was unwavering and her laughter was contagious.
She was a true lover of all animals, big or small. Her compassion for animals in need had no bounds and all seemed to be drawn to her pure soul. Carol also had an astounding artistic ability. She could make anything beautiful with a simple creative thought or a coat of paint. She made her home and garden beautiful, not only for herself, but for others to enjoy. Her gifts and talents were endless and she will be truly missed.
She is survived by her husband, Mr. Garry Yelle; daughters, Mrs. Gina (Andy) Fairbanks and Ms. Mia Yelle; son, Mr. Todd Snyder; step-daughter, Mrs. Suzanne (Randy), Schronce; step-son, Mr. Peter (Liana) Yelle; sisters, Mrs. Donna (Perry) Poquette and Ms. Phyllis Eaborn; grandchildren, Aidan Fairbanks, Lindsay Fairbanks, Libby Schronce, Brenden Yelle, and Nicholas Yelle; and several nieces and nephews.
A special thank you to Elaine Vickers, for your selfless efforts and infinite friendship.
