Obituary for Carleen Lucille Korody

Carleen Lucile Korody of Hartland, MI passed on December 31 2018, she was 70 years old. Born on July 8, 1948 in Bel Air Maryland, daughter of Carl and Jane Roe and sister to Cathy (Ray) Kotlarczyk. She grew up in Detroit and graduated from Chadsey High School in 1966 with her diploma and a license in cosmetology.

Carleen met David Korody on a night out with friends in early 1971 after he returned from serving in the Vietnam War, they married soon after on September 17, 1971 and were married for 47 years. Shortly after being married they started a family with Krista Lee (Damon) Zvoch being born on December 12, 1972 and Jason David Korody being born on June 14, 1976. Carleen spent her life as a loving wife, dedicated mother and Vice President of Dave Korody and Associates.

Carleen and Dave enjoyed many years together spending much time at their cottage up North at Mullet Lake in Cheboygan, MI. The cottage was always open to friends and family. Many summer days were spent boating and riding jet skis on the lake. During the winter months they rode their snowmobiles on the many trails and seasonal roads throughout Northern Michigan with friends and family. When not riding snowmobiles herself she would spend weekends watching and cheering on her son Jason as he raced snowmobiles.

Carleen loved to work on crafts and go shopping. Carleen enjoyed spending time with granddaughters Lauryn and Mackenzie Zvoch, riding the golf cart, tubing and simply enjoying life to the fullest. She had a fantastic sense of humor and her laugh was infectious. She will be missed dearly.
