Carol Ryan, a lifelong resident of Saint Charles, died March 23, 2020 at the age of 81. She was born on May 30, 1938, the daughter of the late Edwin and Elvira Kampman. She graduated from Borromeo Grade School and St. Peter’s High School, and was a long-standing parishioner at Borromeo Catholic Church.

Carol enjoyed traveling with her husband, Charles Ryan Jr., and visiting her grandchildren always put a smile on her face. She loved getting together with her longtime friends from high school, especially her good friend Colette Sebacher, eating lunch by the Riverfront, and endless chatting with family and loved ones while drinking her cappuccinos. She was a treasured wife, mother, grandmother, community member, and friend, who touched many lives with her humor and thoughtfulness.

She was preceded in death by her husband of 49 years, Charles Ryan Jr., her parents, Edwin and Elvira Kampman, and her brother Ed Kampman (Joann). She is survived by her children Michael Ryan (Christine), Charles J. Ryan III (Jodi), Karen Jackson (Mark), Nancy Coleman (Harley) and Kathleen “Katie” Mudd (Darren), her sister Darlene Sachs (Lester), and many grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

If desired, friends may make memorial contributions to Duchesne High School in care of Baue Funeral Home.

A Funeral Mass will be held at a later date, please check back for updated service information.

Due to the outbreak of COVID-19 all visitations and services will be limited to immediate family. Thank you for your understanding.

      My sincerest sympathies to the Ryan family. I remember your mother fondly, especially when I think of our grade school years. She seemed to have had a permanent smile, one that she passed on to her children. Your parents live on through the beautiful family that they raised. You are all in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time of loss.

    I already missed Carol as my next door neighbor. We always had a nice time chatting outside and catching up on all the St. Charles gossip.
    Her and Chuck were great people!
    She will be greatly missed.
    My condolences to the entire family.

    Being able to spend time with Carol (and Chuck) was as joyful and uplifting as time spent in a warm Summer’s day…. laughter and thoughtfulness filled many joyous moments. What a beautiful surprise it was to learn that our mothers were great granddaughters of Fidalis and Euphorosins Schwendemann!
    Ryan family, we share your great loss! ~ ~
