Carol Kay (Morse) Allison

July 28, 1949 ~ April 25, 2021 (age 71)


Carol Kay (Morse) Allison, age 71, of Dowagiac, died peacefully Sunday, April 25, 2021 in the comfort of her family’s presence.

She was born July 28, 1949 in Niles, Michigan, the youngest of four children, born to George Sr. and Wilma Morse.  She married the love of her life, Gary Allan Allison, June 18, 1970 in Dowagiac, Michigan.  He preceded her in death February 22, 1978.

Carol was the most loving and supportive mom, Gramma, and Nana. Her family was her passion, she loved them very much, almost as much as her chocolate.  She enjoyed yard work and sitting on her porch bird watching.  She was an avid Days of Our Lives fan and her family knew not to call between 2:00 and 3:00 p.m. because she was watching her soap.  Carol loved NASCAR and was a diehard fan of Dale Earnhardt, Sr. and Dale Earnhardt, Jr.  She always had the best advice and an open door.  She would give the shirt off of her back to others in need.  Carol will be greatly missed by family and friends.  She is survived by two sons, Jay Allison of Dowagiac, Jeffrey Allison of Niles; five grandchildren, Erica Allison of Berrien Springs, Chelsea Allison of Bangor, Tanner Allison and Paige Allison, both of Florida, Jacob Allison of Dowagiac; nine great grandchildren, Mason Jr., Grayson, Jackson, Grace, Liam, Kollin, Marilyn Kay, Erik, Cassidy; one brother, George Allison, Jr. of Dowagiac; her Pitbull, Doja; and a host of nieces, nephews, and friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband; one son, Gary “Pete” Allison Jr.; two sisters, Bonnie Mitchell, Marjorie Beckwith; and one brother, Jim Morse.

Family and friends will gather Thursday, April 29, 2021 from 1:00 p.m. until time of service at 3:00 p.m. in Connelly Chapel Wagner Family Funerals, 202 North Broadway Street, Cassopolis,
