Carol Albright Obituary

Carol Louise Albright slipped away peacefully at home February 11, 2023 after persevering against cancer for nearly eight years.  She was born November 26, 1961, in South Bend to Marilyn Sands Albright and Richard O. Albright. The family moved to the Carmel area in 1963.

Carol was a proud Purdue graduate, and initially worked in human resources, then started her own successful recruiting business.  She developed an affinity for supporting differently abled individuals, which led her to volunteer for several organizations and eventually worked for Easter Seals and Hamilton Southeastern Schools.

Carol amazed and inspired her many friends with her sense of adventure and unpredictability. She found some of the most obscure things imaginable and turned them into appropriate gifts. In return, wonderful friends supported her in her journey, including many long road trips to Ohio State and the Mayo Clinic for treatment; they undoubtedly extended her life.

Carol loved horses and could relate to their healing and comforting qualities; this led her to volunteer with Agape Therapeutic Riding. She found many of the same qualities in dogs and adopted many that others could no longer care for. She wasn’t defined by her work; although she did love it, she was most certainly characterized by her way of connecting people, her offbeat sense of humor, her devotion to others who were differently defined, and her love of her dogs and horse.

Carol was preceded in death by her mother, Marilyn Sands Albright in 2009.

Survivors include her father; Richard Albright; sister, Susie Highley (Jerry); nephew, Brett Highley; niece, Margaret Highley Connors (Kevin); uncle, Bob Boggus, and several beloved cousins.

Family and friends will gather Friday, February 17, 2023 from 4-7 pm, and 12 noon to 1 pm Saturday, February 18, with the Funeral Service beginning at 1 pm, all in Orchard Park Presbyterian Church, 1605 E. 106th, Indianapolis. Carol’s request was that those in attendance wear Purdue attire.

Following the service, burial will take place in Carmel Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, contributions in memory of Carol, may be made to K9s for Warriors, 114 Camp K9, Ponte Vedra, FL 32081, Leader Dogs for the Blind, 1039 S.
