Carol Guinan passed away on Tuesday, February 8th in Omaha, Nebraska.  She was born in South Sioux City, Nebraska on August 19, 1936.  Carol was the middle of five children born to William and Geraldine Scollard.  She graduated from Emerson Nebraska Sacred Heart High School in 1954, then moved to Omaha a short time later.

She was employed at Woodmen of the World as an insurance secretary.  In 1957, she was introduced to Thomas “Mickey” Guinan through her sister, Patsy.  Carol and Mickey were married on August 2, 1958 and enjoyed sixty-three years of marriage.

Carol was a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother.  She was an excellent cook and enjoyed hosting holiday meals.  Her pets were near and dear to her, including several cats and her beloved white poodle, Tami.  Carol loved spending time with her grandchildren, always encouraging and praying for them.

Always a devoted follower of her Catholic faith, in her early 40s Carol experienced a strong re-conversion to her faith.  She was very involved with the Charismatic Renewal in the 1980s.  That lead to a deepening relationship with Jesus and an abiding devotion to Our Lady, the Rosary, and Divine Mercy.  Carol had her own prayer “chair” in the living room, and on the lamp stand beside the chair, her Bible was always open, with her rosary beads lying on top.  Through the years, Carol and Mickey made pilgrimages to Medjugorje, Our Lady of Guadalupe and the Holy Lands.

    To the Guinan Family and Pat in particular: My deepest condolences on the loss of your beloved parents, so close together. I, too, lost my mom and dad like that, and it can leave one feeling unmoored for quite some time.
    I’m pretty certain Pat was in my Beveridge classroom in 8th grade. I’ve always remembered how sharp he was along with being such a nice person, especially to Mr. Yahnke.
    God bless you all.
