Carol Anne Ragan, 86, of Buhl, ID, was born May 20, 1931 in Los Angeles, California to Frederick and Clara Rose Evans. She went to be with our heavenly father on March 12, 2018, in Twin Falls, Idaho with loving family by her side.
Carol lost her mother at age 13 and went to live with the Clifford family. In 1949 she married Harold Stewart. She began her family in Long Beach, CA with two daughters and a son, Belinda, Karen and Robert Stewart. The family later moved to the small town of Norco, CA where Carol was a homemaker and 4-H dairy goat leader.
Remarried in 1979, Carol and John Ragan left California and bought a home in Buhl, ID. She never learned to drive but she enjoyed walking in her community. She and her husband joined the Calvary Assembly of God where she found a spiritual home among her brothers and sisters in Christ. Carol worked for several local businesses over the years and enjoyed participating in couple’s league bowling and camping, but her favorite way to spend time was with family.
