Carol L. Belson passed away on Saturday, September 7, 2019 at the age of 80. Carol was born June 9, 1939 in Hale, Michigan. She married Jim Belson in June 1957 and moved to Whittemore. Carol retired from teaching in 2002 from Whittemore-Prescott Elementary after over 30 years. She was an active member of Hale Baptist Church and spent many years as a volunteer of the Whittmore chapter of the Friends of the Library. Carol was an avid Detroit sports fan, and was especially fond of the Detroit Tigers. Carol loved traveling and camping and spent many of her summers crisscrossing the country in her motorhome. Her other hobbies included reading and journaling, and many of her friends and neighbors benefited from Carol’s skills and love of baking. Carol was a staple of Whittemore-Prescott sporting events. However, Carol’s greatest passion and joy was being surrounded by her family and sharing countless holidays and family events together at her home.
Carol is survived by her daughters, Pam (Ed) Crainer, Shari (Eric) Kortman; her siblings, Leon (Gerry) Buck, Hazel (Ralph) Graves, Alton (Helen) Buck; her grandchildren, Bryan (Kelly) Crainer, Bradley (Megan) Crainer, Kelli (Jace) Vohwinkle, Rodney (Riley) Crainer, Grant Kortman; and her 10 great grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband, Jim Belson.
