Carolyn Bartell

July 28, 1947 - March 1, 2021

Carolyn Sue Bartell, our beloved wife, mother, sister and friend, passed away on Monday, March 1, in her home at 73 years old.

Born in Bakersfield, Calif., in 1947, Carolyn met her husband and best friend Stanley Bartell in Aptos. They married in 1967 when she was 19 and he was 21. Together they moved to Medford, Ore., in 1975, settling in Phoenix two years later where they also owned and operated Phoenix Auto Center.

Carolyn was a faithful supporter of local businesses, schools, families, and much more. She loved, listened to and encouraged so many that customers and co-workers became friends, and friends became family. Carolyn truly shined the light of Jesus. We are forever changed by the impact of her life and she will be dearly missed.

Carolyn is survived by her husband of 54 years, Stanley; son, Jeffrey Bartell; daughter and her husband, Jolleen and Daniel Grace; sister and her husband, Jan and Craig Bailey; and brother, Richard Hanson (who fondly remembers his sister as "Susie").

The family will have a private service but hope to hold an open celebration of Carolyn's life this spring or summer. Those wishing to honor Carolyn's memory are invited to make a donation of time or finances to the local schools or the many families affected by the Southern Oregon fires.
