Mary Carol (Beres) Wollmann passed on to her heavenly home in the arms of Jesus October 12, 2017 at her home in Burbank, CA under Hospice care and surrounded by her loving family.

She was born on Dec. 25, 1938 in Montreal, WI, daughter of the late Rudy and Mary (Kopacz) Beres. Carol graduated from Hurley High School with the Class of 1956. She began working in Milwaukee, WI. While living there, she met her future husband, the love of her life, Erich Wollmann. They relocated to CA and were married on May 1, 1965.

Carol worked for American Benefit Plan Administrators, Inc. in Los Angeles for over 41 years, retiring as Vice President in 2005. After her retirement, she continued to be actively involved with the Southern California Association of Benefit Plan Administrators, serving as President and just recently retiring from the Board. Carol was Catholic and an active member in various church ministries, playing the organ in her younger years and singing in the church choir. Most recently, she served as an usher at her parish church, St. Francis Xavier in Burbank. Carol thoroughly enjoyed her busy life, traveling and spending time with her beloved family, friends and acquaintances. She was truly respected and loved by many, many people.

Besides her parents, Carol was predeceased by her husband, Erich, in 1983.
