Carol Ann Hoagland, 79, of Bay Village, Ohio passed away on April 12, 2024, at Fairview Hospital in Fairview Park, Ohio surrounded by loved ones who will remember her by living their lives, as she did, to the fullest.

She was born on March 29, 1945, in Tyler, Texas and was a daughter of the late E. Carl and Mary Mattern. Her childhood involved living in Texas, Washington DC, Colorado and eventually Ohio.

An avid people connector, she spent her life involved in many social activities often giving more of herself than she got. She valued faith, family, friends, neighbors, community and sharing her God given talents. Carol was passionate about cooking, good food, her gardens, keeping the birds (and a big fat squirrel) in her yard fed, travel, the arts and music, especially when it was shared with others. After learning violin in her childhood, she renewed her interest in and love of playing when son John started playing the cello. Over the last decade, she so loved her small strings group and friends she met as a proud member of the New Horizons Orchestra at Baldwin Wallace. A skilled artist, she pushed herself and her abilities to always learning more from Cleveland area artists in a love of painting, mainly in watercolor.

Carol was a natural teacher, worked in the Bay and Fairview Park schools in many roles with kids aged from pre-school to high school, a proud volunteer at Cleveland Clinic’s Fairview Hospital flower shop for many years, and involvement in many Bay community groups over many decades.

Beloved wife of 52 years to the late William A. Hoagland.; devoted mother of John (Nancy), Tom (Melissa), and Joyce (Bruce). Doting ‘Nana’ to Jane, Jack, Lauren, Sean and Mitchell. Sister-in-law to Debbie (Gerald) and Susie (Richard). Sister to Jeannie (Mack) and Aunt to Noelle, Andrea, Marit, Emily, Scott and Brian. Cousin to Bill “Bill William” (Val). She was loved by so many and will be missed dearly.
