Carol Marlene (Fuller) Sackett was born on January 11, 1955 in Ontario, Oregon to Leonard and Phyllis (Dunbrasky) Fuller, and received her halo on October 12, 2021.
She graduated from Pendleton High School in 1973 and went on to work a variety of jobs. She met Bernie Sackett, the love of her life, and they were married in 1984 and eternally devoted to each other.
Carol and Bernie made their home in Athena, Oregon where they raised their four children. She was the best Nana and loved her grandchildren unconditionally. Her family was her pride and joy and nothing brought her more pleasure than family gatherings. She also enjoyed snowmobiling, mushroom hunting, camping, and tending to her flowers. She will be deeply missed by all who love her and gatherings will never be the same. Carol was well known for her spunk and sass, which was clearly evident in her customary farewell, “Glad you got to see me”.
She is survived by her loving husband Bernie; children Brandie (Jon) Didion, Billie (Rob) Parker, Danielle (Jeremy) Sackett-Parker, and Jeff (Sandi) Franklin-Sackett, Kris Burke, and her 4-legged children Luther and Bella, whom she adored; grandchildren Randall, Mary, and Iris Didion. Brittany, Madison, and Rylee Parker. Caden (Haley) Sackett, Gage Strzelczyk, Jacob and Sydney Parker and Bentley Sackett; great-grandchildren Zion, Mahri, Saniyah, KiAna, Hope, and Blane, and siblings Liz (Ken) Partridge, Phil (Launie) Fuller, Phyllis (Jim) Fisher, Randy and Bobby Fuller, her sister-in-law Anngie Fuller and numerous nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Leonard and Phyllis Fuller, brother Steve Fuller, and in-laws Kent and Erna Sackett.
