Obituary of Carol A. Mayer

Carol A. Mayer passed away May 25,, 2019.  She was born in Chicago on December 26, 1946 to the late Clare and Ralph Sullons.

She contracted polio at five years of age, but after spending an entire year in a Chicago hospital, she recovered sufficiently to go on to school, graduate from Barrington High School, have children, and enjoy successful careers as a Realtor and Salesperson for Pillsbury in the Midwest territory.

In 2004 after retirement she moved from Stillman Valley, Illinois to Tampa, Florida.  In 2016, she relocated to Sun City Center.
