In Memoriam: Carrol A. Waggoner (March 9, 1937 – April 5, 2024)

Carol Waggoner was born in Salem, Oregon on March 9, 1937, to Claude and Joyce Winegar. Raised in Monmouth, she graduated from Central High School in Independence. She married Don Earle, and they had two children, Don and Julie. Later in life she met her soul mate, Jim Waggoner, and they enjoyed almost 30 years together.

She made her love of antiquing a career and owned her own stores, three in all, with the last one being in Junction City, Oregon. After Jim passed in 2016, she moved from Bay City to Silverton, Oregon to be closer to family.

Carol passed on April 5, 2024, and leaves behind her son, Don (Anna) Broxson; daughter, Julie Broxson; stepdaughter, Michelle Deckert; sisters, Sharon Bonnett and Cathy Komes; several grandchildren and great grandchildren; and her beloved dog and constant companion, Mia.

The family wishes to extend their heartfelt thanks to her caregivers, Mikki, Jane, Roxanne and Karla; good friend, Bob; and Willamette Vital Health Hospice for their care and kindness.

A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
