It is with deep sorrow that the family of Carole (Washburn) Barron announces her passing on Saturday, April 27, 2018, at 86 years of age.

Carole’s memory will be cherished by her four daughters: Debra Northway, Cheryl Stewart, Charlene Sanchez and Darlene Dawson; her six grandchildren: Sara, Melvin, Gabriel, Lucas, Mathew and Melanie; and by her nine great-grandchildren.

Carole was predeceased by her husband of 48 years, Thomas (Tread) Barron; and her brothers: Richard Luthman and Seldon (Duke) and Donald Washburn.

As a military wife, Carole lived in several states and in Germany, and she made many lifelong friends along the road.

She was a natural athlete who excelled at bowling and at golf, which she started playing at the age of 50.

She won numerous awards in both sports, including three Club championships at Weed and Shastina golf courses and at least two holes-in-one. Her team at Vandenberg AFB placed second in the Southern California amateur rankings.

In recent years, Carole could be found with her friends, playing bingo in halls around the area. Her sense of fun and generous spirit will be missed by everyone who knew her.

A Graveside Service will be held on Friday, May 11 at 11 a.m. at Winema Cemetery, with a light lunch to follow at the Sons of Italy Hall at 155 Clay Street in Weed.
