Carol Jean Dvorak

Carol’s life began on February 15, 1949, in McPherson. She was the daughter of Bill and Virginia (Ayler) Richardson. Carol is a 1967 graduate of Kinsley High School. She was united in marriage to her husband of 33 years John Dvorak in July of 1986. 

Carol held many jobs from driving trucks to being a rural mail carrier, but she especially loved her rural mail route. She enjoyed flower gardening, collecting giraffes and playing with her great-grandchildren. She was a member of the Order of the Eastern Star and the Longhorn Association. She enjoyed researching her genealogy and raising her goats.

Her greatest joy was her family which includes her husband, John Dvorak of Marion; children, Sherry Dvorak of Hesston, Derick (Rachel) Dvorak of Salina and Darrin (Rachel) Dvorak of Galva; grandchildren, Daniel (Annabel) Dvorak, Steven Fortner, Dakota Dvorak, Landon Dvorak, Jacqueline Dvorak, Eragon Dvorak, Derrick (Erica) Dvorak, Zachary Dvorak and Jessica (Matt) Dallas; several great-grandchildren; sisters, Janet (Glen) Slay of Watsonville, California and Rosanne ( John ) Jordan of Gunnison, Colorado, and sister-in-law, Janet Richardson. 

Carol passed on Friday, February 21, 2020, at University of Kansas Medical Center in Kansas City. She is preceded in death by her parents and her brother, Steve Richardson. 

Carol’s family will gather with friends on Wednesday, February 26, from 6-8 p.m. at Yazel-Megli-Zeiner Funeral Home, Marion. Her funeral service will be held on Thursday at 11 a.m. at Newton First United Methodist Church, 801 N. Main Street, led by the Reverend Amos McCarthy.

You will be much missed, dear Carol!! I remember when you and John were first married. You fell in love with both John and his children, who soon became children of your heart. Carol is/was a very strong, loving and loyal lady, and someone I feel privileged to call a friend. Condolences and love to John and the family.

We first met Carol at the BOTT MoKan Sale many years ago. She always had such a cheerful and smiley face. We relied on her to get our sale consignments in order and to assure that we had a good time. We met at many Texas Longhorn events and loved to see her always smiling. We will miss you Carol.

Aunt Carol,

I cant seem to remember a time that you didnt smile. Although the time we have spent in the last 20 years have been few and in between, it never felt that way with you. You were always so welcoming. Oh, and funny too! Some of the things you have said over the years have made me crack up! Like telling me that brown eggs were that color because they were cooked too long. Ha!
You will be missed Carol, but I know that you have your spot in heaven....and there is where you will thrive!!! Bless you Carol, and thank you for so many happy memories!!

We love you
