Carolyn A. Pasquale

July 22, 1927 – August 20, 2020

Carolyn A. Pasquale passed away quietly in her sleep on August 20, 2020.  She leaves behind many who are grateful for her long life, including her children, grandchildren and their spouses, great grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews.  She is the last of her generation in our family and will be missed as our touchstone and collective memory, as well as for countless other reasons. She is at peace now, reunited with those who went before her.  In the words of her favorite hymn:

“And He will raise you up on eagle’s wings,

Bear you on the breath of dawn,

Make you to shine like the sun,

And hold you in the palm of His hand.”

The family requests any memorials be made to NAMI, National Alliance on Mental Illness,  Home | NAMI: National Alliance on Mental Illness, or to the Alzheimer’s Association, Home

To all the families who have supported and put their trust in me over the last 40 years as a licensed funeral director/embalmer there are some exciting changes coming.

I will be moving from Bensenville to a bigger office at 1199 S, Arlington Heights Road in Elk Grove Village. My office will be situated in Grove Memorial Chapel, one of the many chapels to better serve and accommodate my families with their funeral concerns and needs.

I will also be able to conveniently meet you at your residence or one of the many funeral homes that I am associated with in the Northern Suburbs and Chicagoland areas.

I am available 24/7 by phone or if you would like to make an appointment please call Jim “Jimmy” Geils at J Geils Funeral Services NOT Geils Funeral Home at 630 247-6623 or email me at to discuss any of your questions. Please visit my website at

Thank you for your trust and continued support
James W. Geils
