Carolyn Louise Kettenhofen, age 76, passed away peacefully on February 11, 2021 in Winter Garden, Florida surrounded by her family.

Carole was a dedicated mother and gramma first and foremost. She treasured her children and grandchildren, embracing every moment. As a single mom for many years, she dedicated her life to her children. She never missed any of their baseball, football, or softball games, Pom competitions or any other events. She kept score for the teams, coached cheer, and judged Pom competitions.

Carole was born in Washington, DC on January 23, 1945. She grew up in Rockville, MD with her parents and three brothers. She spent much of her adult life in College Park, MD before moving to Florida to enjoy retired life.

Her interests included spending time with her grandchildren, scrabble, crossword puzzles, and her annual girls week at the beach with lifelong friends. Upon her retirement, she devoted much of her time and energy as a foster grandparent to special needs children.

Ms. Kettenhofen was preceded in death by her parents, Roy and June Manuel.

The loving and devoted mother of sons Daniel (Kelly) Sheehan of Gambrills, Maryland; Patrick (Erika) Sheehan of Clermont, Florida; and daughter Lori (Gary) Lightner of Dover, Pennsylvania. Her greatest joys in life were her seven grandchildren, Hunter Sheehan, Kathleen Sheehan, James Hook III, Jack Sheehan, Ty Sheehan, Tanner Sheehan, and Sophia Hook. Carole was a loving sister to her three brothers: Tom (Terry) Manuel, Roger (Bobbi) Manuel, and Mike (Cherie) Manuel. She is also survived by several nieces, nephews and cousins.

Donations can be made in her honor to the Foster Grandparent Program:

A celebration of her life will be held post-COVID.

All the beautiful pictures posted, show so much of a life so cherished and lived in kindness.
You are loved sweet Carole by your family and friends near and far. You were a most loved and cherished sister-in law. The years pass swiftly, but the love and admiration for you was as rooted and solid as ever!!
As a Mom and Grandma you rock!!! You had the gift of sharing your love and everyone could feel it.
I remember you were an excellent cook. Once, on a visit to Connecticut, you prepared a whole meal for the Sheehan clan all by yourself. I remember it was roasted chicken and all the most delicious side dishes. Awesome!!!
You taught me how to do needlepoint----Thank you for that. I needle pointed something for just about everyone I knew!!!
Your journey on earth is over but I know you are at peace in Heaven. Please watch over all of us. I will still keep talking to you. I know God is holding you safely in His loving hands.
Always with love and gratefulness you were in my life-
Peggy Sheehan
