Passed away suddenly after heart surgery in Modesto, Ca. Plans for a memorial service and celebration of life are underway, dates will be printed at a later time due to the COVID-19 virus mandated social distancing.
Carol is survived by her aunt Myrtle Sullivan of Laguna Woods, CA as well as many cousins from the Sonoma and Petaluma area, where she grew up.
Sadly leaves behind two godsons Daymond Dutra of Oakdale, Jake Dutra of Valley Springs and their grandmother Joan E. Teunissen of Oakdale.
Carol was the most wonderful, loving, understanding and most respected person we knew. She always knew how to lighten the mood every time someone was down or upset. She had such a big heart and gave much of hers away to be kept and treasured. Carol was always smiling and stayed strong so she wouldn’t worry others. She will be in our hearts forever.
Carol was fiercely loyal to her friends and family. Her presence in our lives will never be forgotten and will be sorely missed. When you think of Carol celebrate the good memories you have of her, her smile and laugh. Carol lived her life outstanding, she raised the bar on excellence leading by example.
Carol was a diehard San Francisco 49er fan from the age of 5. She later became a cheerleader, played tennis and golf in her spare time.  
Carol volunteered and donated her time at the Oakdale Festa bartending. She supported the Boy Scouts by BBQ’ing, the Saddle Club, the 4-H as well as the Future Farmers of America.
Carol was preceded in death by her father Fred Figone and her mother Selena, five uncles and two aunts.
