Carol Ann Eldon (nee Rhoad), 82, of Wheaton, IL, was welcomed into the arms of her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on May 21, 2020.
Carol was born December 21, 1937 to Luke and Leona Rhoad. She grew up in Oak Park, Illinois and graduated from Oak Park River Forest High School. She moved to Nassau, Bahamas when she was 19 and began working in a bank where she eventually met her husband, Belton. One of her proudest moments after moving to the Bahamas was starting a successful Sunday School for all the children at the church she attended. Following marriage and three children in the Bahamas, they welcomed two more children after moving to the states to raise their family. While raising five children, Carol started a home daycare. This grew to be a very successful business and fulfilling career. She continued her passion for both childcare and teaching Sunday School, while her family was her greatest joy.
She is survived by four children, Lyndon (Leslie) Eldon of Naperville, IL, Beth (Joe) Bettinger of Carol Stream, IL, Michelle Miller of Wheaton, IL, Natalie (Doug) Taylor of West Dundee, IL; six grandchildren, Lauren (Kendrick) Smith and Nick Miller, Jessica Eldon, James, Marissa, and Jennifer Bettinger; three great grandchildren, Luke Eldon, Brennan and Addisyn Smith; her twin sister Joan (Bill) Loucks, and brother Tom (Kathy) Rhoad. She was preceded in death by her husband of 31 years, Belton; her beloved son, Lowell; her sister, Barbara (the late Lenny) Kirberger; and her parents, Luke and Leona Rhoad.
Due to the ongoing world health crisis a private service will be held with the immediate family. A celebration of life may be held at another time. Relatives and friends are encouraged to sign the guestbook and share memories at hultgrenfh.com.
Because of her love and compassion for children, in lieu of flowers, donations to any organization that is dedicated to the welfare of children would be appreciated.
