Peck, Carol Freeman, age 80 of Germantown passed away peacefully on March 21, 2019 after suffering an Ischemic Stroke on Friday March 15, 2019. She was born to the late Robert and Louise (Collins) Freeman in Farmersville, OH, and graduated from Jefferson Township Local Schools. Carol was a member of St. John's United Church of Christ in Germantown where she proudly served as the secretary for over 50 years.  Carol was voted one of the Top Ten Women in Dayton in 1995. She was honored for her community service, volunteerism, dedication to her church and her unwavering support and care given to her husband as he battled multiple sclerosis. Through the years, Carol was an active member in her church including serving as the Agape President, a Christ Care Leader, a Sunday School teacher, a Bible School teacher, a Love is a Hug teacher, and a member of the choir and bell choir.

Carol was a God-send for the church and particularly for me when I pastored there. She will be sorely missed; and God's blessings to her family in their time of sorrow. She was St. John's in all the positive ways you can think of.Shalom,Rich and Sue Luh

So sorry for your loss. I was surprised when she came to Dad's life celebration two years ago. She was a special lady.

When shall we see a more welcoming and generous spirit? A loving kind and volunteering heart and a most beautiful smile? I doubt we ever shall. What a truly wonderful Christ like example she was to all of us. A light has definitely gone out at St. Johns. We miss her much already.
