Carole Pouzar

Born: July 2, 1941

Died: August 19, 2018

Carole Pouzar, 77, passed away at Finley Hospital on Sunday, August 19th.

She was born July 2, 1941 in Cicero, Illinois as the second daughter of George and Anne Zoubek, both deceased, and the sister of Georgene.

She raised her son, Tom, as a single working mother and rose to management in information technology at the University of Illinois before retiring with her second husband, Richard, to their tree farm in Guilford Township. She pursued organic gardening and organic living with a passion as a Master Gardener, making numerous presentations throughout Jo Daviess County.

During her life, she was an animal advocate, boxer, musician, and scuba diver, with a curiosity for science that she passed on to her son. She was an incredibly talented and creative cook and passed her love of cooking down to her granddaughter. In the words of her grandson, "She made the best breakfast and always was a fun person to be around. She always knew how to put a smile on all our faces with her crazy sense of humor." Her daughter-in-law "was always amazed at her honesty, love of life and her ability to engage anyone and everyone in a conversation. She acted as she wished." Her generosity in providing time, information and gifts to others was remarkable.

She is survived and will be sorely missed by her husband, Richard and their son, Tom Cervenka (Linda); and their grandchildren, Caitlin and Thomas R. Cervenka.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, September 22nd at noon in Riverside, IL.

Please contact Tom 708-473-2940, [email protected], or carole-pouzar.cervenka.org to RSVP.
