Heaven gained another angel on Wednesday, August 23, 2023, at 11:45 p.m., as Carole Ann Slemons, 79, of Harrisburg and formerly of Lewistown, passed away at UPMC Harrisburg Hospital.

Born May 31, 1944, in Lewistown, she was a daughter of the late Roy T. and Elizabeth M. (Benner) Swineford.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by siblings, Darwin L., John E., Peggy E. and Mary L. (twins), and Sue Ellen Swineford.

Carole is survived by:  her children, Pamela S. Baer and husband, David, of Harrisburg, Peter A. “Andy” Slemons Jr. and wife, Deb, of Florida, and Gerald D. “Jerry” Slemons and wife, Natalie Woods, of Lewistown; siblings, Roy T.

In her earlier years, Carole worked at Rea & Derick Drug Store as a waitress while raising her children, Pam, Andy, and Jerry.  She retired as a textile worker from Lewistown Specialty Yarns with 26 years of service.

After her retirement, Carole continued her love of driving to and exploring new places, completing word search puzzles, and eating strawberry Scooter Crunches.  She enjoyed being around her family and will be remembered as “Grandma Mom” who always displayed her independent spirit and made everyone smile.
