Carole Breeden Dwyer

Carole Breeden Dwyer was born in Gainesville, Florida on the 25th of February 1939 to Barney and Lorene Breeden.  She was the second of five children, survived by her sister Nancy Faulkner, who lives in Terra Haute, Indiana; and joining her brothers Robert, Kenneth and Frank Breeden who have gone before her.  Carole grew up in Punta Gorda, Florida, where she attended Girls State, was high school cheerleading captain, homecoming queen, editor of the school newspaper and participated in multiple other activities and organizations.  It was also there that she met and married James Dwyer in 1958 and gave birth to her four children who survive her: James Jr of Orlando, Judith of Orange City, Catherine of Deland and Marjorie of Daytona Beach.   She is also survived by her six grandchildren, who she was very proud of:  Eddie Senez Jr, Braden and Brock Dwyer, Amanda and Emily Rose, and Steven Cochran; and five great grandchildren.  Carole’s passion was caring for and encouraging her children and grandchildren, and she devoted her life to them.  After moving to Orange City, Florida in 1964, she worked briefly for the Mackle Brothers, before a 20-year career with Deland High School as Administrative Assistant to the Principal and Activities Director.  In 1984 she met and fell in love with Roy Peterson of Deland.  They enjoyed a wonderful life together, with Roy always by her side.  A small service with the immediate family will take place to celebrate her in the coming weeks.
