Date of Birth

Date of Death

December 16, 2021.

Carrol Dean Stockl, age 80, of Sandwich, passed away quietly into the arms of her Savior, Thursday, December 16, 2021.

She was born March 23, 1941, in Brosley, MO, to loving parents, Arvel and Lossie (Taylor) Weathers.

Carrol grew up in Brosley and attended nearby Fisk schools.

When she was only 17 years old, Carrol came to IL to help her sister-in-law with a new addition to the family and ended up staying. She found not only work at Burgess Norton in Geneva, but a future husband as well. Frank Stockl caught her eye and stole her heart. He eventually led her down the aisle in June of 1970. They began their new life together in Elburn while building a house in Virgil. They moved shortly after its completion and spent the next 11 years filling it with love and laughter. Frank was called home to his Lord in 1981, and although she continued to make memories in their home, Carrol made her way to St. Charles. In 1995, she made the move to Sandwich until recent years. 

Carrol loved to fish, especially at her favorite place in Chetek, WI, in which the number of fish and the number of stories competed on every trip. When the snow fell, you could find Carrol riding like the wind on her snowmobile make memories as fast as she was making tracks. At home, Carrol felt most at home in her garden where tomatoes, cucumbers, green beans and host of other vegetables came in with every harvest. You could help her with her garden if you liked, but nobody messed with Carrol when it came to mowing her yard. The lines she made with her push mower were always straight as an arrow and with the grass no more than 2 inches tall. Though she never had any children of her own, her nieces and nephews (not to mention her great-nieces and nephews) were the light of her life.

She is survived by her sister, Faye “Sandy” (Don) Bass; many nieces, nephews, cousins and a family of friends.

She is preceded in death by her parents, Arvel and Lossie Weathers, her loving husband Frank; three brothers: Bud, James and Bill Weathers and one sister, Imogene Norden.
