How do you put into a few words what you want to say in a story. Our friendship started at ESCC, and we shared laughter in the back of the church while waiting to distribute communion.. silently… “See you Friday at Los Bravos?”… such fun giggles… celebrating Mardi Gras every year – oh the King Cakes and cooking we all did. The time I was at the Susan Komen walk and saw Carole walk up as a survivor… she never talked much about it. She just smiled. Hard to put into words how much she will be missed… Love you Carole, may you rest in peace… til we see each other again..
You are such a beautiful soul . You were a bright light in any room you are in ! I loved getting to know you and always looked forward to seeing you ! You never failed at putting a smile on my face . Love you dearly and will miss you more than you will ever know . God speed . Sending my love to you in heaven xoxo
I am so sorry to hear this. I have such good memories of Mrs. Owens. I loved hanging out at your house and talking with her. She was always so nice and I can still hear her voice and laugh in my head. I wish I could have visited with her again – it has been too long. Hello Mr. Owens and Larry and Brian.
Sending so many Prayers & Love to the Owens family. Carole was such a sweet loving soul & will be SO missed!

Please accept my condolences for Carole’s passing. I am so glad she and Ron decided to come to Bethany Christian Church. It was wonderful to get to know you both. We will greatly miss Carole. Prayers for your family and may God comfort you in the days ahead.
Please accept my condolences for Carole’s passing. She was truly a wonderful person to know. It was great having both Carole and Ron join us at Bethany Christian Church. We will miss Carole. May God bless and comfort you in the days ahead.
As an Evansville native who is now the stadium voice of Carole’s beloved Kansas City Chiefs, I wanted to reach out and offer my condolences. It took us 50 years to win the Super Bowl and, as I type this, we’re getting ready to play the Bills for a chance to make it back-to-back championships. Hoping Carole can help us out up there with the big guy! Prayers for her family from all of us in Chiefs Country!
My deepest condolences., When someone you love becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure. 1 Peter 5:6, 7
Carole Jean Owens, 81, passed away on January 17th, 2021 in Evansville, Indiana. She was born in Kansas City, Missouri on July 11th, 1939 to her parents, Courtney and Glenna (Baird) Brown.
Carole was a joyful and kind soul. She loved going to the movie theatre or watching movies at home. She really enjoyed watching musicals and used to frequent open air theatres to watch them live. Carole was a true wanderlust, who enjoyed traveling as often as possible. She and her husband traveled to exciting places like Hawaii and Alaska. They even learned to sail and sailed through the Bahamas with their two sons. In 2016, Ronnie and Carole took their children, grandchildren, and their spouses on a two week Alaskan land and cruise vacation. Carole said that was the trip of her lifetime. There is no question that her favorite football team was the Kansas City Chiefs and she watched every single game. Her favorite thing to do was to sit around with her family and play a spirited round of Shanghai, enjoying a nice glass of Merlot. She loved to just hang out and reminisce on all of the fun times and memories they created together. She loved her family above all else.
Preceding Carole in death are her parents.
Surviving Carole are her husband, Ronnie Owens; her two sons, Brian (Nancy Besing) Owens and Larry Owens; her grandchildren, Mallory (Eric) Wessel and Trevor (Amanda) Owens; and her great-granddaughter, Isabel Wessel.
