Tim Dougherty

Carol grew up in Windthorst, TX, the fifth of sixteen children born to Albert and Adeline Ostermann.
She graduated from the University of Dallas in 1983 and married Tim Dougherty, a UD classmate, in 1985. They settled in Carrollton and were parishioners of Mary Immaculate Catholic Church in Farmers Branch. Carol was a loving mother to their four children, and enjoyed helping at Mary Immaculate School events, assisting in the school library for many years, and helping organize Vacation Bible School.
At Mary Immaculate Church Carol helped with many different ministries.
She taught preschool for over 25 years at Christ 4 Kids preschool and at Holy Covenant preschool, and touched the lives of many children in the community. She helped organize many Girl Scout Day Camps and was a board member of the Friends of Furneaux Creek Nature Trail. She was involved for many years with the Rebekah Leah Rivera Foundation annual auction.  She is survived by Tim and their children Joseph, Sarah (Sean) Dalecki, Julia, and Claire (Chris) Skupien. She loved being “Lolly” to their four grandchildren: Elles, Archer, Washington, and Phoebe Dalecki.
We will miss Carol’s radiant smile and laughter she brought to family gatherings. She loved baking Christmas cookies, having backyard picnics with neighbors, and relaxing with her friends and family. She never tired of spending time with children, especially her grandchildren and her preschool students.
