We regretfully announce the passing of Carol Jean Docter of Show Low, AZ on March 14, 2021. Carol was surrounded by her family and passed away peacefully.
Our mother, Carol, was one of the strongest, most courageous and kindest women to ever walk this earth and our family was blessed to have her as the head of the family. Carol graduated from Oakdale High School in1964. After graduating, she went on to pursue a career as a hairdresser. Later in her life she worked in healthcare and other various administrative and secretarial positions. She finally retired from Riverbank School District as an Instructional Aide.
In 1967 she met Arthur Docter and together they went on to have two children, Laura Docter-Bennett of Bakersfield, CA and Dean Docter of Show Low, AZ. Carol was a wonderful and loving wife and mother who gave her all to her family. We will never be able to fill the space left behind by her.
