Carol Toula Barndollar

Carol Toula Barndollar, 70, of Odessa, Florida, went to be with God peacefully at 3:30 p.m. on April 3rd, 2017.  Lovingly by her side was her husband of 45 years, Hugh, her children, Belinda, Stephanie and Hobby, and their spouses.  She was always proud to bring her family together.

The highlight of her life was her grandchildren.  She rarely missed a baseball game, tennis match, birthday party or school event.  Avery, Hallie, Evan, Bo, Stone, Cole and Landon will miss her terribly.

Carol obtained her Bachelor of Science from the University of Maryland and Masters of Education from Johns Hopkins University.  Prior to moving to Florida, she taught physical education to the deaf at Gallaudet College.  Hugh and Carol built their dream home in Odessa in 1995.  You could always find Carol working in her beautiful yard, getting it ready for the next big gathering of family and friends.   She was an amazing athlete her entire life, even into her final days she was playing basketball, bouncing on the trampoline and water skiing with her grandchildren.

Our special thanks to Trinity Memorial Cardiovascular ICU team who was compassionate, respectful and accommodating of the many family good byes.

At her request, there will not be a formal service, rather her ashes will be spread at her home on Lake Anne, in a small, family ceremony.    While our time with her was cut short, we are comforted to know we will have an eternity with her in Heaven.  Memorial Donations in memory of Carol can be made to:
