I was a grade school and high school friend with Carol. She was smart and witty, even as a child. I saw her last at a reunion, many years ago. She was a fun person. I send my condolences to her family.

Carol, you gave Fr. John Ludden a big hand in rebuilding our beautiful St. Charles church after hurricane Charley. You then filled the church with your beautiful voice and encouraged all to sing. Your warm smile and gentle voice welcomed all. May you now rest peacefully. My condolences to your family.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Dear Abby and Rick, We loved Carol. When Dan was sick, she went to church everyday to pray for him. We will never forget that fact. Her prayers for him were answered. We enjoyed her voice during church services. And we always loved seeing her with her beautiful, warm smile - no matter where she was; she always shared her beautiful smile. We are so sorry for your great loss. You are both in our thoughts and prayers.

Carol was such a wonderful person and a joy to be around. I met her when I was a student at St. Charles and worked with her for years after in the music ministry. She had a beautiful voice and I always enjoyed playing music with her. I will carry many fond memories of her with me.

Ricky and Abby. You know that you mean the world to us as a family and Carol was very special. I remember when she came to my baby shower and predicted that Capri was a girl. I’m so glad to have gotten to know her and I’m so glad to be part of your lives

Dear Abbie, Please accept my heartfelt condolences on your mother’s passing. During your tenure at Charlotte High School, I had the pleasure of speaking with your mother a few times. She was always cordial and gracious. Losing a mother is a life changing event. I think of my mom every day. May you take comfort in family, friends, and cherished memories, and may you find strength, healing, peace, and hope in the days, weeks, and months ahead. I remember you with great fondness and know that you are resilient! Blessings, Mrs. Michalene Perry

I remember the good times with my sister-in-law. She was always so kind and caring to me. I will miss sharing a glass of wine or indulging ourselves in a Bloody Mary at my favorite beach.

When we first moved to Port Charlotte in 2004 and were searching for a Roman Catholic church to join, we found St. Charles Borromeo. Carol Swink was the cantor and her beautiful voice was a big factor in our decision to become parishioners. Through the years we discovered that her personality was as beautiful as her voice. She was always so welcoming and kind to our then small grand-children and they looked forward to seeing her with each visit. The music ministry at St. Charles has gone through several transformations, but none of them have equaled the quality we had with Carol singing. You have our deep sympathy at her passing.
