Obituary for Carol J. Nesbitt

Carol Jean Nesbitt (Horn) was born November 2nd,1943, to Ruth Marie Horn. Carol lived with both her mother and her Aunt Bea in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, where she grew up to own every single color of crinoline known to man. This was the beginning of a lifelong passion for bad fashion and sensible shoes. In high school, Carol met the love of her life, Michael Karl Nesbitt. Mike was into fast cars and drive-in burger joints. While Mike would head to work, Carol was known to take his �54 Chevy out for joy rides with her slobbery Boxer in the back seat and drag race (and win) against the locals. Shortly after high school, Mike and Carol were wed and gifted with a truly spectacular daughter they named Tami Lynn. However, one was not enough, and they quickly followed with a breathtaking boy named Thomas Michael. While Tami and Tom were perfect in every way, there was still an aching hole in Carol�s heart. And so came their wondrous third child, Toni Jean. Some people might think that five people are plenty for a two-bedroom home, Mike and Carol did not subscribe to that theory. So they added a fourth child, Tiffany Leigh, whose beauty was so astonishing it would stop complete strangers on the street. In Carol�s sensible mind (see fashion choices above), four children were not enough, thus inspiring her lifelong love of breeding and showing pure-bred Boxers. Carol purchased her first Boxer in 1959 and throughout the course of her life, owned and bred an abundant number of champions, including many American Boxer Club Sires and Dams of Merit. In fact, too numerous to count. She was well respected (and feared) within the Boxer community. Having served in many organizations, she was most proud of her status as a Lifetime Member of the American Boxer Club, Lifetime Member of the Ohio Boxer Club, and member of the Greater Cincinnati Boxer Club. While the dogs were always a key component of her life, she was secretly in love with Neil Diamond and it is said that she could be found at many of his concerts at the Cleveland Coliseum dancing in the aisles and singing his songs. Carol�s not so secret passion was Ruggles Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream served in a glass with milk poured over it. Her cooking skills consisted of tuna noodle casserole and meatloaf, �delicacies� that were served regularly every Wednesday and Thursday evening. She lives on through her legacies: Karjean Boxers, her four children, her ten grandchildren (Aaron, Ryan, Korey, Katie, Kyle, Karlee, Jason, Joshua, Benjamin, and Ruth) , and her nine great grandchildren (Evelyn, Lydia, Tyla, Koriea, Weldon, Isabel, Jason Jr, Madelyn, and Logan). Carol died peacefully surrounded by her four loving children and her husband of fifty-four years, Mike, on Saturday February 6th, 2016. Carol was more than her arrival date and her departure date. She was all about the dash in between. The Memorial service will be 12:00 pm, Monday, February 15, 2016 at Loveland Presbyterian Church, 360 Robin Ln., Loveland, OH 45140, with a reception immediately following. If desired, memorials may be directed to Loveland Presbyterian Church or the American Boxer Charitable Foundation at The Dash by Linda Ellis copyright 1996 ?I read of a man who stood to speak at the funeral of a friend. He referred to the dates on the tombstone from the beginning�to the end. He noted that first came the date of birth and spoke the following date with tears, but he said what mattered most of all was the dash between those years. For that dash represents all the time that they spent alive on earth. And now only those who loved them know what that little line is worth. For it matters not, how much we own, the cars�the house�the cash. What matters is how we live and love and how we spend our dash. So, think about this long and hard. Are there things you�d like to change? For you never know how much time is left that can still be rearranged. If we could just slow down enough to consider what�s true and real and always try to understand ?the way other people feel. And be less quick to anger and show appreciation more and love the people in our lives like we�ve never loved before. If we treat each other with respect and more often wear a smile, remembering that this special dash might only last a little while. ?So, when your eulogy is being read, with your life�s actions to rehash� would you be proud of the things they say about how you spent YOUR dash?
