In memory of
Carol Raymond Dwan
Dwan, Carol Raymond Bay City, Michigan Carol Raymond Dwan passed away early Tuesday morning, August 4, 2020 at her home in Bay City, as a result of ALS. She was 76 years old. Carol was born May 31, 1944 in Saginaw, Michigan to the late Chester and Ruth (Littlewood) Raymond. Carol grew up spending her summers along the shore of the Saginaw Bay, where at the age of six, she met her childhood sweetheart and future husband, H. Michael Dwan. On December 26, 1966 at St. Stephen's Catholic Church in Saginaw, Carol and Mike were married. Mike preceded Carol in death June 2, 2007. Carol graduated from Arthur Hill High School in 1962, where she was homecoming queen, and then from Central Michigan University. Before starting their family, Carol was an elementary school teacher in Warren, Haslett, and Portage. Carol returned to her career once her children were of school age and worked for both Saginaw Public Schools and Bangor Township Schools in workforce development programs helping adults find employment. She retired in 2008 as the Director of Bay County Michigan Works!, and throughout her career helped more people than can be counted. Carol's love for people was evident in all she did.
