Beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and friend passed away unexpectedly on Friday, July 12, 2019, at Ascension St. Mary’s Hospital. She was 81 years old. Gladys Carol Mazzola was born on October 11, 1937, to the late Orville and Gladys Annabelle (Badgley) Cornish. She was a proud graduate of Arthur Hill High School. Following graduation, Carol married the love of her life, Joseph Mazzola, Jr. on September 28, 1957 in Saginaw; he survives her. She was a former member of St. Helen Catholic Church and a current member of St. John XXIII Parish, Sacred Heart Catholic Church. Carol enjoyed bowling, bird watching, and was fascinated with genealogy, especially working on family trees. Above all, Carol loved and cherished her family, including her beloved Samoyed, Choo Choo. She will forever be remembered for her intellect, independence, and for always being a loving, caring and giving soul.
