She was a talented operatic singer, winning a scholarship to Juilliard, a recording contract and an invitation to join the Metropolitan Opera after winning Miss Preliminary Pennsylvania in 1954. Over her lifetime, Carole was a member of many organizations and clubs, including the Red Hat Society.
She was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Roy E. Breon; and brother Larry R. Wertz.
Survivors include her children, Robyn Lee Breon Fuller (Robert), Scott A. Breon (Laurie) and Jennie R. Breon; brother Dennis A. Wertz (Mary Jo); grandchildren Jason Edwards (Sarah), Heather Collins (Jonathan), Dustin and Tyler Breon, and Nathan and Patrick Edwards; and great-grandchildren Jordan Edwards, Kaiya Edwards, Josiah Collins and Alivia Edwards.
