Carol Jean Schweitzer Lang, age 88, a lifelong Pilot Grove MO area resident, passed from this world comfortably with family by her side on Tuesday, May 30, 2023 at Sylvia G. Thompson Residence Center.

Carol was born December 9, 1934, first child to the late John and Irene Schuster Schweitzer of Pilot Grove MO.  A 1952 graduate of Pilot Grove High School, she went on to obtain her nursing degree in May 1955.  On October 22, 1955 she married Lawrence J. Lang.  They raised their five children while she worked as a nurse, primarily for the Boonville Medical Group where she was known for her painless shot injections, then later at various nursing homes to include Katy Manor in Pilot Grove.  Lawrence preceded her in death November 13, 2000 after 45 years of marriage.

Carol was a lifelong parishioner of St. Joseph Catholic Church of Pilot Grove.  She supported her husband’s love of baseball and enjoyed socializing at the numerous baseball games he coached and her children played.  In her later years, she enjoyed activities with her fellow Red Hat Society members.  She was a lifelong reader with a particular love of who-done-it’s and always enjoyed a good competitive game of rummy or dominos.

She is survived by her children Linda Sundy of Sedalia MO, John (Joe) Lang (Sue) of Sugar Land TX, Jean Lange (Stuart) of Charleston SC, James (Jim) Lang (Sarah) of Columbia MO, and Jeff Lang of Victoria TX; 8 grandchildren; 6 great-grandchildren; siblings Jack Schweitzer (Ruth) of Columbia MO, David Schweitzer (Jeanette) of Kansas City MO, and Kathy Brownfield (Marvin) of Sedalia MO, along with numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
