Carol Jean Crouch, 90, of Mount Carmel, Illinois, passed away on Saturday, August 5, 2023 at Deaconess Gateway in Newburgh, Indiana with her family by her side. She was born on April 22, 1933 in Allendale, Illinois, the daughter of William T. and Grace (Dardeen) Dicus. She married Richard F. Crouch on February 2, 1952, in Mount Carmel and together they enjoyed forty-five years of marriage until his passing on October 9, 1997.

Carol was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend to many. She was a very hard worker and was so sad when she was no longer able to work outside of the home. She was a cook at PJ’s Diner in Allendale and then worked at Hadley’s Café in Mount Carmel for over twenty years. Carol was also employed for District 348 where she worked as a janitor.

When Carol was raising her children, they attended Allendale Methodist Church in Allendale. Her favorite place to be was outdoors sitting on her front porch and going on long walks. Carol enjoyed tending to her garden and flowers. She was always willing to help her neighbors and those in need. Carol was very proud of her family and loved spending time with her grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Carol will be remembered by her two sons, Richard (Debbie) Crouch and Roger (Robin) Crouch; daughter, Leona (Jeff Morgan) York; grandchildren, Cory (Lindsay) Fisher, Misty Fisher, Robert (Samantha) Fisher, Jr., Shannon Fisher, Roger Dale Crouch, Josh Crouch, Rachel (Chris Frey) Crouch, Shawn (Michelle) Ochs, Tiffany (Kieran) Coffey, Tyler (Lindsey) Ochs, and Shana (Ryan) Cash; twenty-one great grandchildren; sister, Barbara (Jim) Hatfield; many loved cousins, nieces and nephews.
