Hearons, Carol Ann (nee ESSER); of Pontiac; November 2, 2014; age 74. Loving wife and micromanager of Michael Hearons; idolized aunt of Cathy Corry, Connie Bell, Laura Baxter, Rick Esser, and Susie Ratledge; and lifetime confidante of kindred spirit and sister-in-law, Joan Runyan. Carol loved people, all dogs, the occasional cat, the open road, all kinds of music, old movies, and high adventure, especially if it involved travel and a degree of risk. She graduated from Pontiac High School in 1958, attended Eastern Michigan U and Michigan State U, pursued (but didn’t quite complete) a B.A. degree in Recreation (too much recreation?), dated a lot, tormented many young men, broke a few hearts, and never lost a game of canasta in the dorms. Though beautiful beyond compare, she married Michael (a nebbish with no career path who stumbled into advertising) and made him supremely happy for almost half a century. Together they followed the sun, hit the casinos, totally spoiled four dogs, and led idyllic lives until her luck (and his) ran out. May God bless her and keep her until the rest of us can catch up with that girl.Published in Daily Tribune on Nov. 16, 2014+Read More Share Listen to Obituary Remember Share a message, photo, or video below View all messages 3 "Carol and I met in April 1967 and became kindred..."- Tennie Rutledge"Carol was in my grade school class at Webster School in..."- David Kimball"I am so sorry to hear of Carol's death.
