Nature 23

Carol Annette (Noeldner) Johnson

September 21, 1941 ~ November 24, 2019 (age 78)


We send our beloved Carol “Gently Down The Stream”, but she continues to be right here with us, everywhere. 

Carol was a deep and joyous soul, overflowing with wonderment and song. Late on Saturday, November 23rd she suffered a sudden stroke, slipped into unconsciousness, and passed away without much suffering or pain. She will be dearly missed by her gentle soulmate Ed, her adoring family, her many cherished friends, and her furry muse, Mimosa. Carol was 78, and is survived by her partner Ed, her son Luke (Tammy), daughter Shalom (James), grandkids Zoë, Mikah, and Annika, and her siblings Mary (Arlyn), Kristine (Andy), Beatrice (Norm), Helen, Paul (Barb) and Hans (Lyn).

Carol reveled in her jubilant faith in Jesus’ teachings, in "A Course In Miracles", and in the ubiquitous love and purposeful energy of the universe. She was bright eyed her whole life that this change of scenery would be another beautiful adventure. As she wrote in "Good Company For The Journey Home”, “Gladly we walk the way of innocence together, singing toward the open door of heaven." Carol now enjoys the welcoming arms of her beloved parents Leonard and Margaret Noeldner on the family farm in the sky. Each of us will still feel Carol’s love and light on a sun-dappled forest trail, in the musical rippling of a meandering stream, and in the warm sand of a breezy Michigan beach.
