IRENE CAROL HAM

August 7, 1926 - May 9, 2018

A private memorial is being planned by close family members.  We will celebrate the good memories.  Love lives on…..

With love we remember Irene “Carol” Ham, 91, who passed away May 9th, 2018 in Melbourne, Florida.  Carol was born August 7th, 1926, in Cleveland, Ohio, to the late Charles and Myrtle Smith.  Carol is survived by her daughter, Diane C. Sharp and son-in-law, Pete Sharp, of Lake Placid, Florida. She leaves behind her granddaughter, Carey B. Price and great grandson, Grant R. Price (who gave her the nickname of GG) of metro Atlanta area.  Another daughter survives her, Christine M. Moody, of Port Richey, Florida as well as two other grandchildren, and other family members and extended family scattered here and there.

     Carol “GG” will be remembered fondly as a spirited soul with an endearing balance of love and spunk. She will live on in our hearts. She had always said when her time came that she wanted “her song”  to be “I Did It My Way”, sung by Frank Sinatra. Those closest to her lovingly agree it is most appropriate.
     The family wishes to extend gratitude to all who showed kindness to her.  Visits from her friend, Judy, with her therapy dog, Buddy, meant so much. Diane and Pete wish to thank those from Vitas Hospice who helped with her care. Island Cremations and Funeral Home was very helpful during this time.

    A private memorial is being planned by close family members.  We will celebrate the good memories.  Love lives on…..
