Carol Jean Reed, 53, of Billings, lost her battle with cancer on Tuesday, Oct. 18, 2011.
She was born on Dec. 25, 1957, in Los Angeles, to Thomas E. and Jeanne R. Reed. The family lived in several states before settling in Billings. She attended schools at Bench, Bitterroot and Lincoln.
The family moved to Helena, where she graduated from Capital High. After graduation, Carol worked in numerous state offices. Carol was briefly married to Patrick Rummel before moving back to Billings.
Carol was preceded in death by her father, Thomas E. Reed. She is survived by her mother, Jeanne Reed; daughters Emily and Amanda; sister Cathy (Kent) Eby; brother Doug (Anjelica) Reed; and several nieces.
Following Carol’s wishes, cremation has taken place and a private family memorial will be held at a later date.
A big thank-you to Pat Reed, Jim Ryon and RiverStone Hospice for all your care and concern of Carol.
