May 8, 1943 ~ January 4, 2022 (age 78)


Carole Jean Luce, 78, of Mansfield, passed away peacefully at home on January 4, 2022 surrounded by her children.

She was born in Coshocton on May 8, 1943. Carole graduated from Newcomerstown High School and received her undergraduate degree in education from Ohio Wesleyan University. Carole was married to Ken Luce on August 13, 1966 and was able to celebrate their 55th wedding anniversary during the final week of Ken’s life.

She is survived by her three children Jeffrey Luce (Linda), Cynthia Luce, and Robert Luce (Rebecca), along with her six grandchildren: Megan (Collin) Bell, Cassandra Luce, Lydia and Chloe Miller, Vivien and Daniel Luce as well as Carole’s brother, Keith Stoffer and several nieces.
