Carol Ann Bevier

Carol Ann Bevier, age 73, of Mansfield, went home to be with her Lord and Savior on Friday morning, November 26, 2021 at OhioHealth Mansfield Hospital following a battle with breast cancer.

Carol was born September 15, 1948 in Shelby to the late Walter E. and Delores (Schiefer) Bevier. She was a 1966 graduate of Shelby High School where she excelled at playing basketball. She then attended Heidelberg College in Tiffin graduating with a bachelor’s degree in Sociology. Carol taught at Mansfield Business College for 11 years.

Carol was a true servant of the Lord and was always faithful to Him. She served Him through her work and outreach at Bethel Baptist Church where she was an active member her entire life.
