Obituary

VANDALIA-Carolyn J. Bienz, 67, passed away December 25, 2019 at Elkhart General Hospital. She was born January 15, 1952 in Elkhart to Charles & Betty (Flauding) Eger. On January 20, 1972 she married Robert S. Bienz; he survives along with 4 children, Jeffery (Lisa) Bienz, Kellie Bienz, Robert (Kelli) Bienz and Kory (Traci) Bienz. Also surviving are 10 grandchildren, Tyler, Jessica, Alyssa, Rylie, Kodee, Braden, Brody, Dawson, Addison, Hayden, 2 siblings Christine (Bruce) Jones and Cliff (Lisa) Eger. She was preceded in death by her parents, 2 siblings, Charles Eger and Cyndi Lewis. Carolyn was loving, caring, kindhearted and had a great sense of humor. She was a beloved wife, mother, and grandmother that was adored by so many. Family traditions meant everything to her. Carolyn was very competitive and active. She enjoyed such things as; listening to oldies music, dancing, playing cards, horseshoes, softball, basketball but most of all growing up with her family on the lakes. She was an avid sports fan especially Notre Dame, Chicago Cubs and Chicago Bears. Carolyn was so proud of all her children and grandchildren that she never missed a game until her health forced her to, but her heart was still there cheering, as she will now do in heaven. Visitation will be held 1 hour prior to the 12 Noon funeral service Thursday, January 2, 2020 at Walley-Mills-Zimmerman Funeral Home. Pastor Larry Settle from Pleasant View Church of Christ will preside, and burial will follow in Rice Cemetery. Memorial contributions may be given to the charity of donor's choice.
