Carol A. Conklin (Retterer), age 67, of Beaver Dams, NY passed away on Friday, December 29, 2017 at Seneca View Nursing Facility. Carol was born January 15, 1950 in Jamestown, NY to Craig N. and Rebecca A. (Haze) Retterer.
Carol will be remembered by her family as a hard worker with an unsurpassed work ethic. She helped run the family cleaning service, Retterer & Son for many years. She gave every ounce of herself to her family and sacrificed for them. Carol loved her family unconditional and was always forgiving of their short comings. Although she never passed judgment, Carol was not afraid to tell someone the truth and assertively stand her ground.
She is survived by her daughter: Tina (Amy Robinson) Winchell of Ithaca, son: Terry (Jennifer) Reed of Beaver Dams; grandchildren: Jackson and Carolina Robinson; siblings: Steve Retterer of Painted Post, Tim Retterer of Corning, loving sister Patricia Rose of Beaver Dams; brother in law: Paul Rose; sisters in law: Deb Retterer, Joan Retterer; nieces and nephews: Nichole Cayia, Shelly Snyder, Crystal Cole, Kelly Abel, Matt Retterer, and Craig Rose and their families; special great nephew and niece: Johnathan, Kyrriah, and Auztin; and many special friends.
Along with her parents she was predeceased by her nephew, Doug Retterer, and her beloved aunt Lois.
Carols family will hold a private service at a later date.
The family would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the staff at Schuyler Hospital and Seneca View Nursing Facility. Carol loved and adored many of you, and we are forever grateful for your compassionate care. Special recognition and thanks to Jennifer Reed, her daughter in law, for all her love and support.
