Carol L. Heilman, 68, of Sylvania, Ohio, died June 3, 2012, at her residence while under hospice care.

Carol was a 1965 graduate of Bowling Green State University. She worked as an art teacher with Morenci Area Schools for more than 25 years, retiring in 1994. She enjoyed watching her grandchildren’s sporting events, fishing and painting. Carol will be remembered for her compassion and acceptance of others. 

Carol is survived by her husband of 47 years Donald Heilman; daughters Lori (and Jim) Rumbarger, and their children Max and Alex; and Stacy (and Anthony) Garrow, and their children Madison and Rylee; and brothers Bill (and Donna) and Bob (and Pam) Maynard.

She was preceded in death by her brother Bruce Maynard.

Visitation is planned from 5-8 p.m. Thursday and from 11 a.m. until noon Friday at Reeb Funeral Home, 5712 N. Main St., Sylvania. A service will follow the Friday visitation, where family and friends are invited to celebrate Carol’s life. 

Memorials are suggested to Hospice of Northwest Ohio.
