Carol Mae Pfaffe, age 83, of Quincy, died on Thursday, August 13, 2020 at 12:16 a.m. in Good Samaritan Home.

Carol was born February 8, 1937 in Quincy, Illinois, the daughter of Harvey H. and Esther Griep Huseman. She married Ronald Carl Pfaffe on September 19, 1959 In Quincy. He preceded her in death October 2, 2013.

She was a 1955 graduate of Quincy High School and earned her nursing degree from the Blessing College of Nursing. She worked as a nurse for Dr. Shoengood until 1961. After her children were raised she worked for Adams County Home Health Services.

Carol was a member of Salem Evangelical United Church of Christ and its women's guild. She played pinochle with her club, "The Bell Telephone Wives," and loved her 'talking club' which consisted of her 4H and childhood school friends. She was a member of the Quincy Boat Club, an avid QHS Blue Devil fan, and enjoyed going up on the river, attending the Adams County Fair and playing cards. But she most enjoyed cooking for her family and any family activity. She and Ron liked to go out to eat, take Sunday afternoon drives, and loved her family vacations.

Survivors include her three children, Jeffrey C. (Lana) Pfaffe of Springfield, IL, Kathy L. Pfaffe of Quincy, IL, and Amy (Douglas) Williman of Fowler, IL, her six grandchildren Michael F. (Sarah) Copley of Cantrell, IL, Haley C. Pfaffe of Macomb, IL, Lauren A. (Steven) Gilland of Tallula, IL, Brett M., and Ashley N. Willimann, all of Quincy, and Allyson L. Willimann, of Hannibal, MO. 7 great grandchildren, Wesley, Kevin, Evie, Abram, Jacob and Samuel Copley and Lucas Gilland, a brother-in-law, Tom Pfaffe of Quincy, and nieces and nephews.

My memories start back at Lincoln School days. We were on many committees together and had such fun. Years later we met up at Bickford Cottage when my my, Lola, was there also. She was such a good person. This made me sad to see her obituary. 🙏
