Obituary for Carol Elizabeth Poynter

Carol Elizabeth Poynter, a resident of Brighton, Michigan, died on August 21st, 2020 at the age of 84.

Carol was born in Calumet, Michigan on December 6, 1935. She married Leonard John Poynter on November 4, 1960.

She was a loving wife, mother and homemaker. She loved her home in Brighton, and true to her wish, she was able to remain in her own home until her death. She also enjoyed spending time with her family, spoiling her grandchildren and laughing. Carol was a fan of casinos, crossword puzzle books, Elvis, every game show, Skip-bo and the Detroit Tigers, even though she said they ‘stunk’. She enjoyed the beauty found in nature especially butterflies and planting flowers. Carol will be remembered for how clean her home and surroundings were and had to be. No one could clean well enough to meet her high standards - LOL.

She is survived by her daughter, Roni Burton; grandchildren, Cole Burton, Miki King and Cody (Amanda) Nihem; great grandson, Master Oliver Nihem; brother, LeRoy (Suzanne) Olah as well as many extended family members and dear friends.

Carol is preceded in death by her beloved husband Leonard in 2014; sons, Rick Poynter and Ronald Gawthrop; parents, Alex and Mary Olah; and brothers, Alex ‘Sonny’ and Allen Dean Olah.

All are welcome to attend a luncheon service prepared in Carol's memory on Sunday, August 30th, 2pm at Senate Georges Coney Island at Bushwood Golf Course, 39430 Dunrovin Dr. Northville 48167.
-- off Haggerty between 5 and 6 mile RD .
