ANDOVER – Carol A. Green-Peck, 69, passed away on Sunday (February 12, 2023) at Jones Memorial Hospital in Wellsville following a brief illness.
Carol was born on February 12, 1954 in Olean to Francis H. and Meredith R. (Perry) Green. She attended Wellsville Central School and later received her GED. She earned an Associates in Science degree from Alfred State College in Culinary Arts and Small Engine Repair. In May 1970 at the First Trinity Lutheran Church in Wellsville she married Robert E. Peck, who predeceased her on September 14, 1995.
Carol devoted her life to her family and the raising of her four children.
Carol is survived by three daughters, Tracy L. Green-Conklin of Wellsville, Kim (Tom) Layman of Belmont and Cindy (Steven) Davis of Houghton; her fiancé of 27 years, Alvin “Stub” Ives of Andover; four sisters, Linda (Bob) Baldwin and Rebecca (Ernie) Willover, both of Wellsville, Edith (Bill Dietrick) Starks of Mansfield, Pa. and Melody (Jerry) Drake of Knoxville, Pa.; one brother, Thomas (Connie) Green of Scio; a special grandson, Kaden Layman; 19 grandchildren; many great-grandchildren; and several nieces, nephews and cousins.
In addition to her parents and husband, she was predeceased by a daughter Tonya Kay Frith; a sister, Yvonne Cornelius and a brother-in-law, William Starks.
Carol loved the simple things of life. She loved having her daughters drop by for a cup of coffee. She loved the backyard camping “trips” and the family picnics. Carol loved baking cakes, for any or no reason. She loved playing Yahtzee with her grandchildren and going out for an evening of BINGO. She loved watching the old John Wayne westerns and the Gunsmoke reruns with James Arness.
Carol loved her family and any reason to have them around. The family gatherings around the holidays and the Fourth of July were big events in her life. Carol is described by her daughters as awesome, a spit fire and feisty. She never had a gray hair on her head and often reminded her daughters of that fact. Playfully, she made it her habit to pluck the gray hairs of her four daughters who weren’t so fortunate.
Visitation will be held on Wednesday (February 15) from 6-8 p.m. and Thursday from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. at the Baker-Swan Funeral Home in Wellsville/Scio. The funeral service will be held on Thursday at 1:00 p.m. at the funeral home immediately following the visitation with Rev. Philip Barner of the Andover Alliance Church officiating. Carol will be laid to rest beside her husband in Woodlawn Cemetery in Wellsville. © 2023 Baker-Swan Funeral Home.
