Carol J. Colling, age 74, of Round Lake Beach, passed away Thursday, April 14, 2016, at Advocate Condell Hospital.
She was born September 10, 1941 in Winnetka, IL to George and Margaret Sewell. On December 31, 1990, she married Steven Colling, in Waukegan.
Carol loved children, and enjoyed working at The Peppermint Stick Pre School in Round Lake Beach. She was an avid reader, who would vividly tell those stories to her family when they came home from school or work. She was a devoted wife, caring mother, and doting grandmother, who will be missed by all, especially her pampered cat, T.J..
Carol is survived by her loving husband, Steven; three children, Robin Wait, Richard (Jennifer) Wait, Ryan Wait; eight grandchildren, Hayley, Asia, Toren, Andrew, Mackenzie, Caitlyn, Charles, and Rebecca.
