Kind and thoughtful, she also possessed a tenacity that served her and her family well in facing life's challenging situations. Her sense of humor, easy laugh, and unceasing desire to connect with others were true to the end, even in the face of the Alzheimer's Disease she suffered in her later years. Carole is survived by her husband, Dr. Richard Wasnich, son Ian, daughter Kaela, daughter-in-law Rujinee (Tu), and granddaughter Natasha, all of Honolulu; and sister Lee Ann Heller of Wauwatosa, WI.
