Carol was born in Portland, Oregon and lived in Aloha until the age of 10, when the family moved to Milwaukie, Oregon. She graduated from Rex Putnam High School in 1984. Carol lived in California and Colorado, before moving back to Milwaukie in 1988 and was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis that same year. She enjoyed cross-stitching, needle craft, animals, reading, movies, plays, going to the Dollar Store, and playing Bingo and Bunco when she was able.
She fought a very brave battle for 32 yrs, along with all the complications that went with the disease.
Carol is survived by her mother, Edie Dimmick and her husband, Ronald; nephew, Zane Neely; and step-sister, Liz Able. She was preceded in death by her father, Clifford Henry Neely and brother, Clifford Robert Neely.
She touched a lot of lives and will be greatly missed by family, friends and caregivers.
A Memorial Service will be 11 a.m. Monday, August 17, 2020 at Milwaukie Lutheran Church.
The family suggests contributions in her memory to ASPCA (see below).
