Carol J. Bixler

June 25, 1943 ‒ July 08, 2015

Gahanna, Ohio
Formerly of Mansfield, Ohio

Carol Bixler passed away Wednesday, July 8, 2015 in Mount Carmel East Hospital in Columbus. She was 72.

She was born June 25, 1943 to parents Dr. Robert & Jane (Skiles) Moffatt in Cleveland, Ohio. After Carol was graduated from Mansfield Senior High School, she earned her bachelor’s degree from Ashland University with the class of 1965.

Carol worked at the Bureau of Rehabilitation Services, where she worked for over 30 years until retiring. Carol was a member of Women of the Moose Lodge #1427 in Worthington.

High school sweethearts, Carol and Clay were reunited at a 25th class reunion and married shortly after in 1987. They were happily married for 28 years.

In spare time, she took pleasure in hand making jewelry. Carol never had enough handmade polymer beads. Her last project always inspired the next.  But above all, Carol cherished traveling with Clay all over the US in their motor home.

She is survived by her husband Clay Bixler; sisters Mary Haley and Sally Greiner, and a cousin Charles Skiles

Carol was preceded in death by her parents and a brother Dr. Jeffrey Moffatt.

A graveside service will be held in Mount Hope Cemetery near Shiloh at 1 p.m. on Thursday, July 16, 2015.
