May 17, 1942 ‒ August 13, 2015
MANSFIELD: Carolyn Maurer passed away Thursday, August 13, 2015 at home with her husband. She was 73.
She was born May 17, 1942 to parents Edwin & Martha (Green) Pueschel in Peoria, Illinois. Carolyn graduated from Peoria High School with the class of 1960.
On October 6, 1961 she married Mike Maurer and together they raised a son and daughter. Carolyn worked diligently to create a loving home for her family (her official title was Domestic Engineer) and she went out of her way to show her family how much she dearly loved them.
