Think of Carol when you gaze into the night sky,
for she is now among the distant stars.
Love and Light to you Mom.
Carol was born in Yakima, Washington to Ed and Mildred Kimsey.
She left this earth due to complications from having a stroke.
She was the only girl born into the family of four children and was the apple of her father’s eye.
The family moved to Spokane, Washington when she was a young child.
She attended Lewis and Clark High School, became a LC Lilac Princess and married her school sweetheart and the LC Football Captain/QB LeRoy Blick on New Year’s Eve 1954.
Within a short time they began construction on the north side home she and her brother John designed and this is where they reside to this day.
She was a devoted wife and mother and truly made this house a home where she would raise their three children.
She loved life and everything that surrounded her; the rainbows, the animals and beautiful flowers, especially roses, but most of all her greatest joy was her family.
She was very proud of them and also of her three grandsons.
Carol always had a strong desire to learn and was an avid reader.
She followed current events, loved a good debate and was never shy to voice her opinion.
These are all traits she passed on to her children.
Her other interests included astronomy, natural healing, self-help, numerology, astrology and a day never went by that she did not check the family horoscopes.
While her girls were young she was very active in the Campfire Girls organization and helped lead opposition for annexation of the Linwood area into the City of Spokane.
In her later years she enjoyed estate sales always looking for little treasures to send to her grandsons.
She is survived by her husband of 57 years LeRoy, her son Alan, her two daughters Kimberly and Lynda, their spouses, her grandsons Ryan, Tyme and Zhen, one brother John, his wife Carol and many nieces and nephews.
We all would like to thank Hospice House of Spokane for their gentle support and care.
Per her request for cremation no services will be held.
The family will hold a private ceremony at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to Hospice of Spokane (P.O.
Box 2215, Spokane, WA 99210).
