Carol Jean Botsch (nee Brodsky), age 72, passed away on May 12, 2023, in Sarasota, FL. She was born in Chicago and spent most of her life in that area before moving to Sarasota.
Carol graduated from Southern Illinois University and after several years as a flight attendant, she spent her life caring for her family and others. She will be remembered as a kind and generous person who always put the needs of others before her own. She had a passion for helping animals, the beach, and spending time with her family and friends. She fully embraced her role as “Mom” and never missed a recital, concert, competition, performance, game, ceremony, or any other event that was important to her daughters. She was smart and witty, with a great sense of humor and a contagious laugh that will forever be missed.
She is survived by her loving husband, Mike, and her two daughters, Katie (Paul) Nowicki and Allison (Brian) Sims. Carol was a devoted grandmother to Ryan and Will Nowicki and Natalie, Nora, and Audrey Sims, and loved by many extended family members and friends. She was preceded in death by her parents, Muriel and Eugene Brodsky, and her siblings, Barbara, and Robert.
A Celebration of Life will be held this summer in Illinois in Carol’s honor. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to either the Alzheimer’s Association or a charity of choice in Carol’s memory.
