 Carol V. Lennaman Dye of Florissant, Missouri, formerly of Vichy, Missouri, passed away August 9, 2023 at the Sarah Community in Bridgeton, Missouri. She was 86 years of age.

She is preceded in death by her husbands, Frank Lennaman and Walter Dye; several step-brothers, two sisters, Joan Jones and Edith Adams.

Carol was a cosmetologist, and she operated a beauty shop in Vichy for over 30 years. She loved the ocean; she loved to walk the beach and collect seashells. Carol was an avid reader and always had a book checked-out from the library. Frank and Carol always had a big garden and loved to can vegetables. They provided canning goods for all five of her kids’ families. She was well known for her homemade ketchup, and she always made sure that the kids never ran out. She enjoyed worshiping her Lord and attending the First Baptist Church in Newburg, Missouri. On the weekends, you would find Carol and Frank at a local square dance listening for the caller to announce the next dance. Walter and Carol visited the residents at the nursing home and residences in their neighboring communities. Walter and his family would provide the music with Walter playing the guitar. She will be sadly missed.

Carol will lie in state at 10:00 AM Saturday August 12, 2023 at the Jones Funeral Home in St. James, Missouri.
