          Our wonderful Mom and Grandma, Carol Ann Gasta, went to dance with Dad in Heaven, in the early morning hours of Thursday, October 10, 2019 at The Brook in Gladwin, Michigan. Age 79 years. Carol was born on July 20, 1940 in Crump, Michigan to the late Lawrence W. and Genevieve “Jeanette” (Gontko) Letourneau and was a lifelong resident of Bay City. On February 14, 1970 at St. Joseph Church in Bay City, Carol married the love of her life, Floyd M. Gasta, and he preceded her in death on April 9, 2011. Carol worked at the Hampton Manor Nursing Home for 18 years, and later retired from the Hoyt Nursing Home on May 29, 1992 after working her whole career as a Certified Dietary Manager.

She was a member of the Knights of Columbus Women’s Auxiliary St. Stephens Council #4102, and the Fraternal Order of Eagles #1010. Some of her favorite hobbies included; ceramics, sewing, embroidery, camping, and reading. Above all nothing meant more to Carol than her family. She will be missed dearly by all of her family and friends.
