Carole Stumpf Obituary

Carole Miller Stumpf

Age 95, of Mount Lebanon; and formerly of McCandless,  Homosassa FL, O’Hara Twp, Pittsburgh, and New Kensington, passed away on Thursday, January 18, 2024 due to complications of dementia.  Beloved daughter of the late Ralph Henry and Mildred Milsom Miller; beloved wife of 51 years to the late Edward M. Stumpf, Jr.; loving mother of Michael Stumpf (Molly), Ralph Stumpf, Amy Giammattei (Bruce), and the late Thomas Stumpf; cherished grandmother of Christopher Stumpf (Sara), Michelle Cuttie (Kyle), Jason Stumpf (the late Ashley) (Morgan), Eric Stumpf (Lauren), Adriana Listwak (Tom), Nina Stumpf, Hattie Murphy, Brandon Murphy, Andrew Stumpf, Nicole Stumpf, and Katherine Grace Stumpf;  dear sister of Paula Phillips (John); and good friend to the late Gene Ludlow.  She is also survived by seven great grandchildren and numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins.

Carole was a member of Emanuel Lutheran Church in Etna and also of St Timothy Lutheran Church in Crystal River while living in Florida.

Carole graduated from New Kensington High School and worked as a secretary for the the School District as her first job.  She was also very proud of working as a secretary in the main office of the H. J. Heinz Company, which was in Pittsburgh.  She later took over the bookkeeping of the family business, Stumpf’s Markets, until her husband Edward and she retired.  

Carole also frequently volunteered, taking on other jobs great and small.  She was a lifetime member of the Girl Scouts, starting in 1938 as a girl scout and sticking with it as an adult, eventually working as a volunteer at the highest organizational levels in the area.  She was also a member of the Order of the Eastern Star.

Besides these jobs, Carole raised four busy children.  She enjoyed reading and working on crafts, some with Edward, like decorating the doll houses he built, and lots by herself, such as knitted comforters and needle pointed pillows and wall hangings.  While in Florida she took up golf to spend more time with Edward, an avid golfer, and indoor mall walking, for exercise.  She organized a community indoor walking group that walked more than 200 miles in the local mall.  Like everyone, she had some oddities, like sunbathing each Pennsylvania summer until she was burnt to a crisp or driving driving down steep snow-covered roads during the Pennsylvania winters with the car facing downhill, but the transmission in reverse for “stability” or insisting that the television show “MASH” was filmed near Homosassa.

Carole and Edward did some traveling; going to Alaska and across the Pacific to New Zealand and Australia, where Carole climbed Ayer’s Rock.

There will be no visitation.  The family will hold a memorial service at the Weddell-Ajak Funeral Home, 100 Center Avenue, Aspinwall, (Date and Time TBD),  followed by interment in the Miller family plot, Worthington, PA
