On October 17, 2019 our precious matriarch, Carolyn Theresa Apfel Sparks Polluck, left our world to be with the lord. She is survived by her sister, Marie Mathis, her 3 children Diana, Laura and Joe, and their spouses Larry, Jesse and Lisa, 8 grand kids, Theresa, Andrew, David, Alison, CJ, Tammy, Jolene and Jason and 16 great grandkids. Carol resided in Castaic, CA for about 30 years and in 2004. She moved to Porterville, CA as her final resting place. For many years, in Castaic, she loved working as a yard attendant in Castaic Elementary School where she was always called "grandma". She was an honorable member of the "women of the moose" for a great number of years in the New Hall Lodge. She took part in many charity events through the moose. Carol took great pride in being a seamstress her whole life, and she loved being a grandma.\n\n\n\nWe will be celebrating her life on Tuesday, October 29, 2019 in her Porterville Home at 3:00 p.m.
