In memory of
Carolyn A. Oblender
Oblender, Carolyn A. Rockford, Michigan Formerly of Bay City Carolyn A. Oblender, age 79 passed away Sunday August 2, 2020. She was born July 10, 1941 to Arthur and Lula (Ryczek) Lukowski and lived in Bay City until moving to her daughter Kristen's home in Rockford, Mi in 2011. While working at Layers Drug Store she met Ronald Oblender and they were married on November 12, 1960. They were married nearly 50 years when he passed away October 28, 2010. She is survived by her children Susan Oblender (Ann Arbor), David Oblender (Farmington) and Kristen Priem (Rockford). Fun loving and devoted Jaju, Jaj, J to 3 grandchildren Nathan Priem (Rockford), Anna (Chuliang) Xiao (Rockford) and Evan Priem (Walker) and 1 great grandchild Henry Xiao. She is also survived by her cousins Jim (Joy) Balwinski (Utica) and Bill (Jane) Balwinski (Novi) and sister-in-law and brother-in-law Betty (Frances) Martin (Midland) as well as many nieces and nephews. She was pre-ceded in death by her parents, her aunt and uncle Marie and Walter Balwinski and a sister-in-law Shirley Schmitt. Carolyn was entirely devoted to her family and we have many happy memories of times we shared. She was a great cook and enjoyed watching Food Network and reading food magazines as well as jig-saw puzzles, reading, shopping and eating out. Most of all she loved spending time with her family especially her grandchildren and Henry was her absolute joy. She will also be missed by her grand-dogs Lucy, Ollie and Freddie who she lavished with love and treats. The Funeral Mass will take place Friday, August 7, 2020 at 1:00 pm at All Saints Parish, St. James Church with Fr. Jose Cabrera presiding. Visitation will be at 12:00 pm at the church. A private Rite of Committal will follow at St. Patrick's Cemetery. Due to the current health concerns and limitations, social distancing will be observed and everyone will be required to wear a mask at the church. In lieu of flowers, we would appreciate expressions of sympathy be sent to The Assistance Fund, Pulmonary Hypertension Fund, 4700 Millennia Blvd. Ste 410, Orlando, FL 32707. This foundation and others allowed Carolyn to get the best treatment despite how expensive it was. These medications greatly improved her quality of life. We would also like to thank Spectrum Hospice for their care and guidance over the last 6 weeks. Funeral home services are being provided by the Trahan Funeral Chapel.
