October 24, 1937 ~ October 4, 2021 (age 83)


HODGE, CAROL CLAIRE age 83 of Independence Township, passed away on October 4, 2021. Carol was born on October 24, 1937 in White Lake, Michigan to loving parents William G. and Eleanor T. Cardona (nee Wasinksi); loving mother of Lisa (Ken) Kander, Clint (Jeanine) Hodge, and Diane (Clifford) Hodson; proud grandmother of Beth (Danny) Kander-Dauphin, Jacob (Jessica) Kander, Adam (Jenna Pawlicki) Kander, Claire (Kevin Golden) Kander, Brent (Samantha) Hodge, Felicia (Aaron) Turk, Mitchell Hodson, William (Madeline) Hodson; cherished great grandmother of Camden, Henley, Jude, Lucy, Effie, Matan, Vivian, and Malcolm; dearest sister of the late Joan Davis. Carol loved her little house on the lake, morning coffee with a little “something sweet,” discovering a good new book (mysteries and true crime), watching British television- Sherlock Holmes and Call the Midwife were favorites. She had so much love to share and made a loving home for beloved dogs and cats over the years. She loved good food with a glass of wine shared with friends and family. She loved garage sales and thrift shopping for a bargain and cheering on her grandkids. She was so proud of them all. She was kind and compassionate, rescuing dogs, sponsoring children in need, and supporting many charities. Her family meant the world to her, and she will be deeply missed.  In memory of Carol, family asks donations to be made to the Humane Society or St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital.
