January 9, 1945 - December 11, 2018
Carol Dixon Tummons, aged 73, died peacefully on December 11 after a brief illness. She was born on January 9, 1945 to Robert and Marjorie "Bonnie" Tummons. Carol was born with cerebral palsy and throughout her life she navigated the challenges and complications of her condition with faith and grace. At the time of her death she was a resident of Venture Inn in Nanuet, NY, and she was a proud member of the Inn's first cohort of residents when the group home opened in 1976. Carol was embraced by many circles of care and support. She was associated with Jawonio from its founding and was an avid camper at Camp Jawonio for many years. She had two loving church families who nurtured her love of God and gave her spiritual sustenance: the Suffern United Methodist Church of her youth and Germonds Presbyterian Church of New City where she was a beloved member of long standing. Her Venture family gives to the word family a new and deeper meaning: here was love personified. Carol leaves to mourn her loss her beloved mother Bonnie Tummons of Pearl River NY; brother Donald Tummons of Uniontown, PA; sister Barbara Lynn and brother-in-law Edward Lynn of Ann Arbor, MI; nephew Jonathan Tummons and niece-in-law A. J. Tummons of Pittsburgh, PA; niece Jillian Tummons of Van Nuys, CA; and the mother of her nephew and niece, Bernadette Tummons of Uniontown, PA. Cremation has taken place. Services are scheduled for Saturday, December 15, at 10:30 am at Germonds Presbyterian Church. A private burial will follow. In lieu of flowers, memorial gifts may be made to the Venture Foundation, 230 Route 340, Suite 102A, Sparkill, NY 10976 or Germonds Presbyterian Church, 39 Germonds Road, New City, NY 10956.
