Carol Hadden Obituary

Carol Joan Hadden was born in Detroit Michigan January 31st, 1938.  She spent her childhood in Lincoln Park, MI, being raised by her aunt Nonny. Carol began a life of travel after meeting and marrying James Hadden who was a member of the USAF. Their homes throughout the years were in Massachusetts, California, Germany, Kansas, England, Massachusetts (again) and finally ending up in Klamath Falls. Carol was an amazingly strong woman, raising 5 kids (4 boys!) on a shoestring budget. She would round up the kids when it was time to come in and race them back home-and she would beat them all. She was always able to make birthdays and Christmas special with the best chocolate cakes and her secret fudge recipe.

Carol started working outside of the home when the kids got older. She worked at the Linkville Emporium, Miller Auto, and finally ended up at the US Forest Service where she stayed for 30 + years. She retired 9 years ago (reluctantly). She then volunteered at the Salvation Army and the Red Cross.

She will be missed by all who knew her and loved her. She is survived by her 5 children: Robert, Kevin, Jeffrey, David, and Jennifer, 8 grandchildren and several great grandchildren. She is also survived by her sister Pixie and longtime friend and companion Tom Baker.

Friends and family have shared their relationship to show their support.
