Carol L. Yonts, 85, of Belfast died peacefully on Feb. 25, 2019.

She was born March 27, 1933, in Bismark, N.D., to Lyland and Harold Breen.

She began her career in bookkeeping/payroll at the Coca-Cola Bottling company in Bismark. She later moved to Los Angeles, then to Farmington, N.M., from there to Denver. Finally, in the last few years, her adventures brought her to Searsport.

She loved to knit and crochet, play Bunko and Poker, and she loved music. She enjoyed spending time with her friends. She was an avid reader, devouring a book a day; she moved on to audiobooks as her eyesight failed. Later in life, her favorite pastime was spending time with her grandchildren, great-grandchildren and family. Carol was truly one of a kind, with a quick wit right up until the end.

Carol leaves behind a large family: her daughter, Tracy Tufo and her husband, Mark Tufo of Frankfort; their three children, Nicole Fletcher (Hal) of Henniker, N.H.; Justin Tufo (Tina) of Holden; and Travis Tufo of Portland. Her great-grandchildren include Ali, Wesley and Oakley. Her sisters are Rosalie Strauss (George) of Longmont, Colo., Harolyn Huerta (Joe) of Longmont, Colo., and Jean Kaizer of Wiconsin; and her sister-in-law Bernice Yonts of Denver. She also leaves many nieces and nephews, and a great many friends.

She was predeceased by her husband Everet Yonts, her brother Ronald, her brother Donald, and her parents Lyland and Harold Breen.

A memorial service will be held Saturday, March 16, at 5:30 p.m. at Riposta Funeral Home, 182 Waldo Ave, Belfast.

Carol will be laid to rest in Vona, Colo., next to her husband.

Arrangements are under the care of Riposta Funeral Home, Belfast.
