Obituary for Carol Sue Girten

Carol Sue Girten, 81, of Sedalia, Missouri, passed away on Friday, January 17, 2020 at her home. She was born on June 28, 1938, in Sedalia, a daughter of Clarence and Stella (Forster) Jackson.

Carol lived her whole life in Sedalia, and married her one true love, building a family that she was most proud of. Her integrity was outstanding and could not be faltered. Carol loved people and everyone who knew her, loved her. She enjoyed spending time with family and friends. She enjoyed fishing, watching football (especially the Chiefs), and taking care of any and everyone she could. She would go the extra mile for anyone, and it meant the world to her to be able to do so.

Carol loved to stay busy, she would clean and clean and clean some more, even if it didn’t really need it. She always loved working in the yard and loved having it pristine at all times. Carol’s family was her world. She would go with out to make sure they were taken care of.

Survivors include a son, Christopher Girten; a daughter, Connie Girten-Hicks (Johnny); five grandchildren: Nicci Hayes, Adam Hayes, Nova Girten, Sabrina Fields, and Garret Fields; five great grandchildren; a brother, Larry Jackson (Betty); and numerous nephews, great nieces, and cousins.

She was preceded in death by her husband, James Girten; her parents, Clearance and Stella Jackson; and a brother, Robert E. Jackson.

A private viewing and family gathering was held on Monday, January 20, 2020 at Rea Funeral Chapel, Sedalia.

What I said earlier is not enough. You were such a rare individual, great aunt Carol. While you did not have much in terms of monetary wealth, you were a prime example of someone who lived a rich life, and you could have filled a home of any size with love. I will definitely miss your feistiness, and how you could always make me laugh. However, your greatest trait was the ability to make anyone feel like family. You had so much love for everyone in your life. Through the sound of your caring voice, you were always able to convey how much love you had for everyone in your life. While I continue to shed tears from the pain of losing you, they will eventually subside. My love and admiration for you will not. I will always remember you.

Aunt Carol was the kindest, sweetest, most soft spoken person I have ever known. She always had a kind word for everyone. I will forever be thankful for all she and Uncle Jim did for us when our mother passed away. Although I was very young, I still remember them being there and loving us. Love her so much and will miss her. Rest In Peace Aunt Carol.
