Obituary for Carol Hadley
Carol Joyce Hadley, 59, of Marquette Heights, Illinois passed away at Pekin Hospital on August 9, 2014. She was preceded in death by her parents, both who passed away when she was a very young child. She is survived by her daughter, Danna Hadley of Marquette Heights, Illinois and her grandson, Camdon Waters of Marquette Heights, Illinois. She also left behind many friends who miss her dearly and remember her fondly. Carol was a strong woman who was always doing what she could, not for herself, but for others. She was a very caring mother and grandmother. Her daughter and grandson are what kept her going and were the light of her life. She worked very hard over the years but she surely had her fair share of adventures. She was born in Waltham, Massachusetts and later ended up in Bodega Bay, California before ending up here in Marquette Heights, Illinois. She worked at Peoria Tube Forming her whole time in Illinois. Her wishes were to be cremated and her daughter will be taking her home to Bodega Bay, California to let her rest at sea. She loved the ocean and that is where her heart is. She did not wish for funeral services but her daughter will be having a celebration of life for her this Saturday, August 16, 2014 at Goodfella’s in Pekin, Illinois from 1pm until 4pm.
