Obituary

Carolyn M. Goldner, 97 of Eau Claire, took her Lord's hand on Tuesday, December 17, 2019 following an extended bout with Alzheimer’s at Woodland Terrace in Bridgeman. A funeral service celebrating her life will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, December 21, 2019 at Chapel Hill United Methodist, 4071 Naomi Rd, Sodus, MI. Burial will follow at Mt. Pleasant Cemetery in Sodus. Visitation will be held one hour prior to the service from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. The funeral arrangements are being handled by Starks & Menchinger Chapel & Cremation Services.

A Chicago transplant, Carolyn was born to Frank Jr. and Anna (Kopova) Koncel in Berwyn, IL, on February 6, 1922. The oldest child of a baker, she and her brother Frankie spent many hours in their youth selling Bohemian delicacies. On July 17, 1940, she was married to the love of her life, Edwin “Ed” Goldner, with whom she enjoyed 69 years of devotion, friendship, and hand-holding until his passing in 2009. To this union were born two sons, Donald Edwin and Edwin Frank. A homemaker first, after raising her boys, Carolyn went to work for Memorial Hospital on the switchboard. Her knack with numbers and organizational skills facilitated her rise to Credit Manager with only a high school diploma. She was very proud of the fact that upon her retirement it took two college degreed individuals to replace her. Carolyn loved polkas and big band music and would frequently be seen dancing in her kitchen to the catchy tunes.

She and Ed were “snowbirds" for many years enjoying their homes in both Sodus (and Pipestone Lake) and Fort Meyers, FL. They traveled extensively, visiting most all of the 50 states as well as Mexico, Canada, and the Bahamas. Her favorite times, however; were those spent with family.

Among those who will forever remember Carol are son, Donald (Norma) Goldner of Eau Claire; daughter-in-law, Faye (Lynn) Goldner of Schoolcraft; grandchildren, Beth (Mike) DeCoursey of Saint Joseph, Brenda (Dave) Seeley of Portage, Bonnie (Jeff) Hackman of Gilbert, AZ, Carol Martin of Eau Claire, Jason (Jennifer) McIntyre of Battle Creek, Stephany (Mark) Baliff of Galesburg, and Matthew (Jessi) Goldner of Schoolcraft. She is also survived by 17 great-grandchildren; Spencer and Quentin DeCoursey, Dalton, Brian, and Megan Seeley, Emma Hackman, Sami, Lexi, and Kasi Martin, Ryland, Hudson and Beckham McIntyre, Josie, Avery and Elena Baliff, and Brooklyn and Kendall Goldner; step-brother Ray (Marla) Cerny; and numerous nieces and nephews.

Those who greeted her in heaven include her parents; husband, Edwin; son, Edwin F. Goldner; brother, Frank Koncel III; great-grandson Sawyer Mark Baliff; and step-brothers Edward, Richard, and Robert Cerny.
