Carol Jean McDonald, formerly, Carol Anderson,(who preferred to be called Carole) of Sea Girt Estates, N.J., passed away on July 18, 2019 in Billings, Montana at the age of 76, with her family by her side. Carole was born and raised in Freehold, N.J., and graduated from Freehold Regional High School in 1960. Upon her marriage to Dennis McDonald (of Nanty Glo, P.A), she resided in Sea Girt Estates for most of her life before moving to Billings, MT. Carole was an avid reader, a gifted shopper as well as a master homemaker. She was able to sew anything and made her children's clothing for many years until they discovered designer brands. Carole’s favorite pastime was going to Sea Girt beach and spending time with her family. The world stopped when Carole and her husband Dennis were on the dance floor.

Carole’s career included being the main office secretary at Old Mill Elementary School and then the guidance secretary at Howell High School where she later retired. Carole was quick witted, funny and loved both students and staff. She was often seen giving away late passes, as well as any other personal belongings that her students needed.

Carole was predeceased in death by her loving husband of 35 years, Dennis McDonald; her mother Jean Anderson, father Warren J. Anderson, brother-in- laws James McDonald, Ronald McDonald, sister-in-law, Rita McDonald, niece, Rhonda Hill and nephew, Rick McDonald. Carole is survived by her daughters Kelly Lee, (son- in- law, Ernie Lee), daughter Jennifer McDonald Bauries and daughter Megan McDonald. She is also survived by her cherished grandchildren: Bobby Lee, Lyndsey Bauries, Morgan Lee, Reagan Emery, Chae Lee, Noah Gribko, Camryn Aiello and Devyn Aiello. Carole is also survived by her beloved sisters: Lynne Christen,(husband Walter Christen), Janine Prochnow ( husband Wayne Prochnow), Tracey Bruseski, ( husband Steven Bruseski). She is also survived by her nephews: Cary Karp, Keith Karp, Shane Christen, Joseph Bruseski, Brian Prochnow, Jeff Burkhart; Nieces: Brittany Giordano, Paige Bruseski, Denise McDonald Molinich, Kimberly George, Laura Strayer and Callan Burkhart. Carole is survived by her sister-in-law Dee McDonald and her best friend of over 56 years Carla Friedman.

It has been my blessing to share 56 years of friendship, family and love with your mom, grandmother, sister
And aunt
and my best friend. From meeting before we were married, to weddings, children and family events each time was better because of our friendship. We shared lots of laughter and secrets, illnesses and joys but most of all a lasting bond that can never be broken. Sending you all love and laughter when you talk and think about your mom and grandmother. She was a blessing to us all

I have many happy childhood memories of running across the street and spending time with the McDonald family. I spent countless hours playing at their house. I remember they took me on my first camping trip it and I had such a good time. Carol was a big part of those memories. Very sorry for your loss.
