Carol A. (Stephens) Bickel, 65, beloved wife of Joseph A. Bickel of Trooper, PA passed away on Thursday, May 13, 2021 at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital surrounded by her family.
Born on October 26, 1955 in Phoenixville, PA, she was the daughter of the late Harold M. and Marjorie (Reichert) Stephens. In addition to her husband of 43 years, she is survived by; two children, Amy Bickel Prough (Ryan Prough) and Ryan Bickel (Danielle Moore Bickel); Grandson, Alexander James “Bubba” Bickel; two "Fuzzy grandkids" Lily and Simba; Brother, Drew Stephens (Rosemary Stephens); Sister-in-law, Colleen Stephens (wife of Carol’s late brother Bruce “Buzz” Stephens); Four Nephews, Joseph, Jonathan, Kyle and Andrew.
Carol was a dedicated Head Cook with Methacton School District for over 10 years. Even after long hours cooking at work, she loved to come home and whip
up yummy meals for her family and loved ones. Not only was Carol a master in the kitchen, she was also known as a “Mrs. Fix-It” - a strong woman who could figure out any task or challenge she was confronted with. Other lifelong hobbies included crafting and home improvement.
As a loving “Mom mom”, Carol enjoyed spending her weekends watching and hanging with grandson AJ. Most nights, you could find her relaxing on the front porch talking on the phone, or chatting with neighbors. Carol had an impact on everyone she met, and was known as an extremely caring, genuine person who always had a smile on her face - and consistently put everyone else’s needs before her own.
Relatives and friends are invited to attend her Funeral Mass at Visitation BVM Church, 196 N. Trooper Road, Eagleville, PA 19403 on Tuesday, May 18, 2021 at 11:00 am. A visitation will be held in church on Tuesday from 9:30 am to 10:45 am. Burial will follow at St. Ann Cemetery, Phoenixville.
