Carol was born on October 13, 1945 in Colon, Panama to John D. and Lois (Miller) Bernichon. She married Joseph Daniel Aguilar on December 17, 1987 in Bandero, TX. She is survived by her husband, one sister, Susan Elefante of Scottsdale, Arizona, two sons, Sean (Deanne) Moran of Claremont, FL and Thomas J. (Christen) Aguilar of Lebanon, Indiana, one daughter, Christa (Rodney) Druin, and four grandchildren, Robin Higdon, Christopher Moran, Hadley and Noell Aguilar.
She was a single parent for many years and was faithful and diligent in raising her son Sean.
Carol received her Associate Arts degree in Music from Suffix County College in Long Island, NY. She served in many capacities in many different jobs throughout her life. Being an accountant was a great delight to her. She last served in this field with the Arizona Supreme Court.
Being married to a pastor opened many doors of opportunity to serve in Christian ministry. She willingly served alongside her husband who pastored several different churches: Victory Temple in Phoenix, AZ, Free Methodist Church in Glendale, AZ, Pleasant View in Plattville, Wisconsin, and Bethel Free Methodist Church in Peoria. As a diligent pastor’s wife she was active in secretarial roles helping with newsletters, correspondence and connection with the people. Carol was a people person, she loved to talk and enjoyed her friends. Music was a great love of her life and she had a strong singing voice. She participated with the church choirs, praise teams and solos. She was also fond of promoting ministries to children.
Carol was a generous and kind-hearted person. In the last week of her life she was still taking food to families in need. At the time of her death she was a member of Peoria Heights Congregational Church and was in the choir and praise team.
A Funeral Service will be held at 1:00 PM on Friday, July 31, 2020 at Peoria Heights Congregational Church. Pastor Phil Nettleton will officiate.
Memorials may be made to Peoria Heights Congregational Church.
