DANVILLE, PA ~ Carol Elizabeth Buck, 77, of Danville, PA, passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday, October 5, 2021. She was born October 13, 1943, in Bloomsburg, PA, the daughter of the late John F. and Margaret Fogle Kashner.

Carol graduated from Danville High School in 1962.

She was preceded in death by her husband of 35 years, R. James Buck. They were married June 22, 1963.

She was employed as a clerk in various departments at Geisinger Medical Center for 45 years, retiring in 2012. She thoroughly enjoyed working at the Bloomsburg Fair Gate #3 for 22 years. Carol also volunteered for many years as part of the Airport Crew of Camp Horizon.

She was an avid Bloomsburg Fair attender and was always ready to go whenever the opportunity presented itself. Carol loved going on cruises and traveling, especially to Florida to visit her sister. She loved country music and game shows. One of her favorite pastimes was “people watching” wherever she went. Her greatest joy in life was her family, especially going to all sports games of her two grandchildren, whom she adored.

Carol will be remembered for her bubbly, charismatic, loving, and nurturing soul. Her life was centered around home, family, holidays, and she was always ready to share her gracious hospitality with family, neighbors, and guests. The welcome mat was always out, and those who came through her door felt very much at home. She will be dearly missed by all who knew her.
