Carol Minon, 78, of Phoenix passed on February 18, 2014. Born in Chicago, IL, on January 21, 1936. When she was a teenager, Carol and her family moved to Phoenix where she met her husband, Joe. Carol and Joe celebrated 60 wonderful years of marriage. Carol is survived by her husband Joe, her daughter, Cindy (Dan) Ketcherside, her son, Michael (Sheila), and her grandchildren, Michelle (Carey) Israel, Joshua, Rosemary and James Minon; Ryan (Rainie) Ketcherside, Rick (Shawna) Ketcherside. Also great grandchildren, Lily Israel, Gwen and Gavin Ketcherside. Beloved by family and friends, Carol had a capacity for caring that led to a career as a counselor for victims of Domestic Violence for more than 20 years at Sojourner Center. As a result of this passion and her boundless Irish energy, Carol was the founder of Arizona Beta Sigma Phi’s Against Domestic Abuse/Share the Magic (AzBSPADA) 501c (3) charity, which raised hundreds of thousands of dollars in support of domestic violence shelters throughout Arizona. A memorial mass will be held for Carol on Friday February 21st at 12pm (noon) at Saint Patrick’s Catholic Community Church, 10815 N. 84th Street, Scottsdale, AZ. A Celebration of Carol’s life reception will immediately follow the mass at the home of Dan and Cindy Ketcherside.

Carol was a delightful Bible Study partner for several years and shared her love for family and compassion for domestic abuse victims enthusiastically and without reservation. She has left behind a wonderful legacy for all who loved her.
God bless each family member with peace and joyful memories of her life, her passions and her love for so many. Our prayers and sympathy to each of you.

I am sorry for the loss of your loved one. God’s words in the Bible give us a future hope. At Isaiah 25:8 God promises to “swallow up death forever” and “wipe the tears from all faces.” He also promises a resurrection for those sleeping in death. (Acts 24:15) May you find comfort from the Bible.
