Obituary for Caron Colette Cole

Caron Colette Cole, 59, of Brandon, FL passed away peacefully on April 04, 2024, surrounded by family.

Caron was born on November 6, 1964, in Streator, Illinois, to Edward Kenneth Cole and Rosemary Agnes Carbone. Caron is preceded in death by her beloved parents, siblings David Cole and Susan "Sue" Cole Hawk, and her grandmother Emma Carbone.

Caron was blessed with two loving families, the Coles and the Garzas, who brought her a lifetime of happiness. Caron is survived by her life partner of 19 years, Janie Hughes, Janie’s daughters Nicole and Kristey Hughes, Caron’s daughter Kristine (Evan) Redstone, and Caron’s son Caleb Cole-Chandler. She leaves behind her four grandsons, David Moore II, Matthew Redstone, Ronald Redstone, and Rohan Cole-Chandler. She also leaves behind siblings Edward (Sherry) Cole and James (Mary) Cole, sister-in-law Kimberly Cole, and several nieces, nephews, great-nieces, and great-nephews.

Caron was born and raised in Streator, Illinois. After graduation, she joined the United States Air Force where she proudly served her country for 10 years with the Strategic Air Command (SAC) as a cost analysis specialist. Caron moved to Florida in 1993 after she was honorably discharged from the Air Force. She then attended college at USF and obtained her bachelor’s degree in social work. Later, she discovered her love for numbers and began a career as a program coder.

Caron was a gifted and creative individual who could do anything. She was a member of the Mensa society. Her infectious smile would grab the attention of many. She was loyal and always willing to help anyone in need. In her spare time she enjoyed sewing, crafts, working on cars, and home repair projects. Her brother Eddie said she was the best female handyman around! She was an amazing cook and made the best pasta dishes, tacos, barbacoa, burnt hotdogs, and cheesecake. Caron loved to travel. She especially enjoyed going to museums, antique shops, and national parks, but her favorite trips were spent with her family near and far. Her most memorable trips involved going back home to Streator, Illinois, to visit her family and friends and enjoy some delicious tenderloins, Mona’s tortellini, and Joe’s pizza.

Heaven has gained a beautiful angel. Caron will hold a special place in our hearts. Loved her then, Love her still, Always have, Always will. Services will be held at the Sarasota National Cemetery in Sarasota, Florida on May 17, 2024, at 12:30 P.M. with a Celebration of Life to follow at Janie’s home in Brandon, Florida.  If you plan to attend, her family asks that you wear something colorful to represent Caron’s beautiful life. Her favorite color was Red.
