In addition to her parents, Carol was preceded in death by her first husband, Frank Horvath, a police officer who died in the line of duty in 1968; and by her second husband, Donald Ward, who passed in 1998. She is survived by sons, Jon Horvath, of Unity; and Frank (Nancy) Horvath, of Seaman. Carol also leaves her brothers, Howard Sherrett, of Hamilton; and Paul Sherrett, of Tucson; Arizona; and her sister, Alice Combs, of Tucson, Arizona.
