It is with profound sorrow that we announce the passing of Carol Sue Shady in Lakewood, CO on June 20, 2021. She was a loving and devoted Wife, Sister & Aunt, Mother, Grandmother & Great Grandmother and fast friend to everyone she encountered.
Carol Sue (Armstrong) Shady was born on February 12, 1940 in St. Marys, Ohio. First and foremost, Carol was a devoted Wife, Sister and Mother. She treasured her four children and made the most of every moment with them. She especially loved her role as a Grandma and Great-Grandma. She retired from Shamrock Foods, where she made many friends who considered her as family, after a very long and successful sales career. Carol enjoyed and was an extremely talented bowler. She also adored animals and spent much of her life surrounded by dogs. Carol and her late Husband, Don Shady, spent much of their leisure time at the dog track rooting for their favorite Greyhounds. She had a vibrant personality and always made people around her smile. She made friends everywhere she went and her family spent her last days surrounded by friends with mile high stories and memories.
