Carolyn’s greatest joy was her children and being a grandmother to six beautiful grandchildren. She always made friends wherever she went. She was always the life of the party.
She was preceded in death by her loving husband of 45 years, Joseph A. August, whom she married on July 22, 1961, at St. Teresa Catholic Church; and her parents, George and Myrtle T., nee Munie, Zimmermann.
She is survived by her two daughters, Andrea M. (Zach) Loll of Robinson, IL, and Stephanie A. (Shayne) Dalton of Lake St. Louis, MO; a son, Brad A. (Diana) August of Belleville, IL; and six grandchildren, Sloan and Evan August, Blain and Cooper Loll, and Connor and Colin Dalton.
