Carol M. Diehl, 82, of Northumberland, died peacefully late Sunday night, Aug. 6, 2023.

She was born in Sunbury on Sept. 12, 1940, the oldest of two children of the late Robert and Dorothy (Romig) Weaver of Northumberland.

Carol was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 46 years, Jerald K. Diehl who passed in 2008, and her loving companion of 13 years, Lee Bettleyon who died in 2023.

She was a judge of elections in the Northumberland Third Ward for 56 years and an Avon representative for 35 years. Carol was very active in the annual Pineknotter Days, running the craft show and with her husband Jerry earned the title of "Mr. and Mrs. Pineknotter" in 1986.

She was a bloodmobile volunteer for the American Red Cross and a member of the Northumberland/Point Township Kiwanis Club.

As a stay at home mom, Carol was involved in the PTA and served as a Girl Scout leader and Den Mother for the Boy Scouts.

Carol truly enjoyed spending time with her family and lifelong girlfriends. She stayed active with her former classmates organizing reunions. She was a kind, loving and compassionate mother and friend. Her grandchildren were her greatest joy.
