    Dear Loren and family,
    I was deeply saddened to hear of Carol’s passing. She was a big and happy part of my many years at Northwest Catholic High School. We shared many good times together as friends and faculty members at athletic events, social events, and many other school functions. She was a dedicated and nurturing teacher who always approached her classes in a positive and friendly manner. We always had a very close knit and supportive faculty and Carol was a big part of that. I am sorry that time and distance prevent me from attending her services but please know that she and you are in my thoughts and prayers. Sincerely, John C. Shukie NWC Faculty Retired Baltimore, MD.

    Mrs. Schave was one of my favorite Math teachers at NWC almost 20 years ago. She was a real joy to have as a teacher. God rest her soul and my condolences to the family. #NWC4life
