Carol was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin the only child of George and Nettie Goedicke. Carol graduated from Rufus King High School in 1940 and attended Milwaukee Business College. She loved to dance and met her future husband, Air Force Lieutenant Arthur Fitzgerald (from Boston, MA) at The Eagles, a popular gathering place for WWII servicemen on leave. She and Art became part of The Greatest Generation.
They married and raised two daughters, Ann Carol and Lynn Margaret. Carol volunteered at her daughters’ schools and began a long career at Lamplight Products, a startup company, created by two of her high school friends. She was their first employee and over the years Lamplight became quite successful.
Carol and Art lived in Elm Grove and Wauwatosa, WI until 1984 when they retired to Sun City, AZ. Sadly, Art passed away in 1986. Carol remained in AZ and later married Emil Bozigar in 1990. They enjoyed traveling and visiting their children and grandchildren scattered across the country. After Emil’s death in 1996, Carol remained in Sun City and enjoyed everything the retirement community had to offer. She moved to College Station (Watercrest) in 2012 to be closer to family.
Carol was a very active volunteer for many decades. Carol was extremely involved in St. Clement’s Catholic Church in Sun City and served on their parish council. She volunteered in an elementary school first grade classroom for years. She played bridge, enjoyed entertaining, cooking, reading, spending time with her grandchildren, great-grands and watching football; especially her beloved Green Bay Packers. She was a hospital volunteer for over 30 years including six years at Baylor S&W Hospital in College Station. Carol was a member of St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church in College Station.
Carol is survived by her daughters Ann Busch (Paul) and Lynn Domokos (Darrell). She was a dear Nana to her grandchildren Jennifer Busch Walzel (Kyle), John Fitzgerald Busch (Kristin), Amanda Domokos, Melissa Domokos Grooms (Brad) and Aaron Domokos (Nicole). Her eight great-grandchildren are Grace Anne Walzel, Claire Elizabeth Walzel, Caroline Abigail Walzel, Patrick Fitzgerald Busch, Thomas Paul Busch, William John Busch, Jack Hunter Grooms, and Jenna Kaitlyn Grooms.
The family wants to thank Dr. William Pieratt for his tremendous care and compassion these past seven years. Dr. David Lawrence Scott and Dr. David Hackethorn provided excellent care as well. Alexa from Comfort Keepers, Tanya from Accel at College Station and Mimi from Health Quest were her favorites!
