Carol A. Scully, age 77 of Minooka and formerly of Apple Canyon, passed away Friday evening, February 8, 2019 at Morris Hospital in Morris, IL, losing her battle with degenerative lung disease.
Carol was born March 16, 1941, raised in Niles, IL and graduated from Niles Township HS. She and her family moved to Palatine, IL in 1964 where she lived for 40 years raising her four children. Since that time, during her retirement, Carol resided in Elgin, Lake-in-the-Hills, Apple Canyon and Minooka.

Carol will be remembered most for her negotiation skills at the flea markets, ability to win hundreds of dollars at the penny slots, the BEST lasagna the world has ever tasted, her love for Portillo’s, indulgences like Coke, pizza and potato chips and time spent with her dogs Bingo and Bingo.
A family memorial lunch will be coordinated later in the year. Funeral arrangements are under the direction of Fred C. Dames Funeral Home, 1201 W. Route 6, Morris, IL 60450. For more information please call (815) 942-5040 or you may visit her Memorial Tribute at www.fredcdames.com
