Obituary — Carol M. Nazario "The Tea Lady"
Carol passed away Friday, August 15, 2008 in an auto accident. She was born December 25, 1945 to Joseph Louwerse and Judith Ester in the Bronx, NY. She is survived by her two sons, daughter, and five grandchildren.
Though she was born in the Bronx, Carol lived most of her life in California. She worked many years for the Orange County Court system and received many accommodations for her innovative solutions to the jury selection process. She then worked years in the legal profession, then for the Federal Government until she retired. She came to live out her retired years here in the beautiful mountains of Utah in the mid ’90s and found comfort and peace here. She always had a love for a good cup of tea and opened her own tea parlour in Midway. Joined by her business partner and great friend Kat, the tea parlour was enjoyed by many and brought joy to Carol’s life.
Her life was at times a roller coaster with all the unexpected twists, turns, ups, and downs. The years she spent here in Utah were good to her and she enjoyed the direction her life had taken. The precious time she had with her grandkids gave her great joy and happiness and she was loved dearly.
Carol wore many hats in her lifetime; daughter, sister, mother, aunt, employee, boss, wife, business owner, friend, tea lady, grandma, coach, partner, and so many others. Though some hats fit her better than others, she was brave enough to try them all on.
Mom, you were taken from us too soon and you are missed by so many. I believe you are probably up there with a cup of tea in your hand, pixie at your side, looking out for a great soccer game, and keeping watch over us all. We love you, miss you, and wish you a wonderful journey. There will be a wake in Carol’s honor on Thursday August 28, 2008 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at a private residence. Please contact Kat for details.
