Carol L. Raisor, January 28, 1952 - March 7, 2020. On Saturday, March 7, 2020, Carol peacefully passed away at age 68 at Addison Pointe Health and Rehabilitation Center in Chesterton, Indiana.


Carol was born January 28, 1952, in Muncie, Indiana, to Robert and Edwina (Bath) Raisor.


Carol grew up in Michigan City, Indiana.  For the last twenty years, Carol resided at Michigan City Life Care Center and most recently at Addison Pointe in Chesterton, Indiana. 


Carol was an honor student and graduated in 1971 from Elston High School.  Prior to her illness, Carol was active and outgoing and enjoyed cheerleading from 6th through 9th grades. 


Carol had a passion for reading.  She was also a huge fan and owner of dozens of old-time, golden era movies, her favorite To Kill a Mockingbird.  While at Life Care Center, Carol delivered mail to all residents via wheelchair.  This gave her great pride and joy as her grandfather was a letter carrier in the 1930s and '40s.  Carol was known for her unwavering positive attitude and her infectious smile.
