Carol Florence Engelbert

Updated: Jul 14

December 25, 1938 to June 21, 2021

Carol Florence Engelbert, age 82, peacefully passed on June 21, 2021, and is now another angel that her family and friends will forever miss. Carol was loved by all who crossed paths with her. Her charismatic personality attracted anyone that she interacted with, including strangers in the grocery store. She loved to laugh, and never took life too seriously.

Carol was born in Cedar Falls, Rhode Island, on December 25, 1938, to Alphonso and Theresa Jordan. Her family moved to San Diego, California when she was a young girl. Life was not always easy for Carol; however, she met the love of her life, Eddie Engelbert, and they were married in Huntington Beach, California on February 23, 1982. Eddie and Carol had a love of horses, and owned a horse boarding ranch, in Arcata, California. They relocated to Lake Havasu City, Arizona in 2003. They enjoyed traveling in their motor home, boating, and going on adventures. Carol was an avid quilter and was a member of a quilting group called Cactus Needles. She survived a battle with cancer, and although she had many health issues from the treatment, she always had a positive outlook and a tenacious spirit. Carol, her daughter Rhonda, and granddaughter Ashley, were like the three musketeers, always scheming some plan like going hot air ballooning, taking a trip to L.A. to meet Carol Burnette, racing red corvettes, or simply taking a girl’s trip to the fabric store.

Carol is survived by her loving husband, Eddie Engelbert, and their little girl (dog) Candy; her children Rhonda Stockwell and David Johnston, her grandchildren Christopher and Katie Ponticelli, Cody Johnston, Taylor Johnston, Austin Stockwell, and Ashley Stockwell; her great grandchildren Jon Honeycutt, Bryce Ponticelli, Addison Ponticelli, and Bailee Ponticelli, as well as her favorite grand dog, Baxter; and many, many friends who adored her.

Carol was preceded in death by her parents, Alphonso and Theresa Jordan, her son, Steven Johnston, and her son-in-law Rick Stockwell.

Carol requested to not have a celebration of life, and in lieu of flowers, she would like you to please donate to Hospice of Havasu.

I would like to extend my upmost of gratitude to the doctors and staff at Havasu Regional Medical Center, Haven Health, and Hospice of Havasu for their professionalism, compassion and kindness to allow Carol to leave this world peacefully and painlessly.

The world lost a one-of-a-kind woman who lived, loved, and most of all laughed out loud, and heaven gained an angel of gold.
