Carol Jean Schroeder

Carol Myers Schroeder (Baker), beloved Mommy and Mimi, age 73, of Edmond, Oklahoma, passed away peacefully in her home surrounded by her girls on November 5th after a long battle with cancer. Carol was born on October 5th, 1949 in Tulsa, Oklahoma to Mary and Veachel Baker. Carol graduated from Dewey High School in 1967, then attended Northeastern State University and obtained a degree in education. Carol met Gary Myers on a blind date at the VFW dance in Nowata, Oklahoma. This blind date eventually led to their marriage in 1973, and by 1981 they had been blessed with three beautiful girls: Christy, Kerry, and Jennifer. After a brief stint as an educator, Carol changed course and pursued a career in the oil & gas industry. She began her career as a secretary at Cities Service Oil Company. The title of secretary didn't last long. She quickly built a reputation for having a strong work ethic and a desire to move up the ranks. Those traits vaulted her into what would become her true passion; being a landman. She was one of the first women to rise to that position in the company and she never took that for granted. She worked hard throughout her career with stops at Plains Resources, Louis Dreyfus, Dominion, and finally High Mount, where she retired as Land Manager. She was always thankful for the oil and gas industry. Many of her lifelong friends were met during her career.During her time at Plains Resources, Carol met Herb Schroeder. This long-term friendship developed into her second marriage. With Herb, Carol discovered jazz, fly fishing and he furthered her love for antique shopping. While work was always a huge passion for Carol, she adored her daughters. She was a constant encourager. Always urging them to find their path and achieve their goals, supporting them in all their endeavors. As they began to grow their own families, Carol loved and supported her grandkids like she did her daughters. Whether it be gymnastics, baseball, dance recitals, or school events, Carol was there. She loved spending time with family. Carol was a member of New Covenant United Methodist Church and always reminded her family that God was in charge. Her biggest hobbies were antique shopping, decorating and gardening. Carol loved spending time with her aunts, cousins, sisters and her nieces; they would travel far and wide to shop for antiques. Carol would never pass up good Mexican food or chocolate cake. Once she was unable to leave her house, she would ask for Mexican food at least once a week. Carol was an avid weather watcher, letting all her family know when to take precautions. She loved her dogs and could regularly be found at the sonic drive in getting them a snack.Above all, Carol was a fighter. She was courageous in her battle against cancer. She spent countless hours researching and dedicated herself to health and wellness. This mindset will never be forgotten and will guide us during our own trials and tribulations. Carol was preceded in death by her parents and sister, Rosemary Stammer. She is survived by sister Judy Quisenberry, children Christy Glenn and husband Jeff, Kerry Myers and husband Chad Cahill, Jennifer Delancy and husband Jeff, six grandchildren: Crosby, Quinn, Mercer, Evan, Henry and Hallie as well as several cousins, nieces and nephews. Carol is also survived by Gary Myers and Herb Schroeder.A celebration of life is being held at New Covenant United Methodist Church on Thursday, November 17th at 11am.
