June 19, 1956 – Jan. 14, 2013

Carol A. Scholl, former assistant manager at Tonawanda Community Federal Credit Union and a former Niagara Wheatfield School Board member, died Monday in her Williamsville home after a battle with ovarian cancer. She was 56.

Born Carol A. Carpenter in Buffalo, she graduated from Amherst High School and earned a bachelor’s degree in business from Fredonia State College. She was with the credit union from 1995 and until illness forced her to retire in 2011.

While living in Wheatfield, Mrs. Scholl, who was active in the PTA, was appointed to the Niagara Wheatfield School Board in 1998 to fill a vacancy. She declined to run for a full term the following year but was appointed again to a vacancy on the board in 2001.

She won election in 2002 and served until 2004, when she moved to Williamsville.

She loved the beach and enjoyed traveling.

Surviving are her husband of 30 years, George; two sons, Chad and Cale; a daughter, Elizabeth Hake; three brothers, Mark Carpenter, Patrick McNamara and Todd Detamble; and two sisters, Margret McNamara and Maureen Miller.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be offered at 9 a.m. Saturday in St. Gregory the Great Catholic Church, 200 St. Gregory Court at Maple Road, Amherst.
