Born Aug. 15, 1942 in Chicago, Mrs. Rasmussen graduated from Metropolis Community High School in 1961.
Everyone who knew Carol loved her for her humor and kind spirit. She wanted her epitaph to be: “I made them laugh.”
She will be sorely missed.

She was preceded in death by her father, Charles Sherman.
