Carol Bluestein, 69, joined her loving husband, Terry Bluestein, on May 11, 2018. Carol was born on September 17, 1948 in St. Louis to the late Roger and Loretta (Abeln). She was proceeded in death by her brother, Don, and sister-in- law Susan. Carol is survived by her son, Mark (Amanda), daughter, Tracy (Matt) Hayward and her Aunt Elsie as well as numerous cousins, nieces and nephews. Carol was a devoted wife, mother and grandma to her grandchildren Morgan and Cali.
Carol spent her later years enjoying time with her loving family, traveling to many parts of the U.S including Tennessee, Texas, Michigan and her favorite destination New Smyrna Beach, Florida. When not traveling, Carol read countless novels, was an avid fan of Cardinals baseball and rarely missed her reality programs on HGTV and TLC. Carol devoted the rest of her time to the preservation and care of animals big and small, but as her memorial brick at the St. Louis Zoo reads:
“Carol Bluestein loved the Gorillas.”
In keeping with the wishes of Carol, there will be no funeral services. In lieu of flowers, please consider a contribution in Carol’s name to the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation. For more information visit the Crohnscolitisfoundation.org
