Carole Florence Richesin

March 1932 – January 2013

Carole Richesin, 80, passed away at Memorial Medical Center after a long illness. Carole was born in Modesto, CA and grew up in the Turlock and Newman areas. She graduated with the Turlock High School Class of 1951. In January of 1952 she married the love of her life, Carl Richesin, after he completed his military service in the Korean War. Carole and Carl raised four children. She retired from Dolly Madison Confectioneries Bakery where she worked as a clerk for 22 years, but her heart and soul was always wrapped up in maintaining a home for her family. Generous to a fault, she was always concerned about the needs of others before her own. She was dearly loved and will be greatly missed by all that knew her.

Carole was preceded in death by her parents Sherman and Eva (Schubert) Biles, a sister Peggy Reid and a son Mark who passed away in December of 2010. She is survived by her husband of 61 years, Carl Richesin; three children: Cathy (David) Sharp, Larry (Tresha) Richesin, and Kenny Richesin, all of Modesto; six grandsons, six great-grandchildren, one great, great-grandchild and many others that called her Mom, Grandma, Granny, and Nanny!
