Peacefully passed on June 11, 2022. Carol was the beloved wife of 15 ½ years to Gerold Dirks. Loving mother of Richard (Amy) Harris, Patrick Harris and stepmom of Sascha (Anna) Dirks. Special grandma of Matthew, Nickolas, Coralynn and great grandma to Anthony and Audriana. Sister of Robert Kalkstein and the late William Kalkstein. Also survived by numerous nieces and nephews. Carol worked as a dental technician for 35 years at Albensie Dental Lab. This was where she met her beloved husband. She was a loving grandma and helped to take care of them. She enjoyed Old Western Movies and watching the series MASH. Traveling and going to the beach were things she enjoyed but more importantly to help provide for her sons early on. She would do anything for anyone.
