Loving Mother, Grandmother, Sister and Friend


Carol L. Kane, 85 of Westlake passed away Saturday, February 27, 2021 surrounded by her family. She was born July 14, 1935 in Cleveland, Ohio to the late Robert and Jane (nee Bradley) Graning.
After graduating from St. Augustine Academy, Carol attended nursing school at Mercy Hospital in Canton, Ohio where she completed her RN training. She worked as a surgical nurse at first, but later worked for Dr. O'Sullivan when he opened what would later become Bradley Bay Nursing Home in Bay Village. While Carol enjoyed her time as a nurse, she found great joy in the next stage of her life. She married Donald Kane on September 6, 1958 and they welcomed three children into their growing home. Carol and Don were founding parishioners of St. Ladislas Church in Westlake and she spent many hours serving and volunteering at the church. In addition to being a Eucharistic Minister she volunteered with the St. Vincent de Paul Society. Carol also enjoyed playing Bingo, gardening, traveling and spending time at their friends farm in Nova, Ohio.
Carol is survived by her loving children Michael Kane (Robin), Kellyanne Phillips (Jeff) and Douglas Kane; cherished grandchildren Hannah Phillips, Sean Kane, Shannon Kane, Erica Phillips, Shea Kane and Shelby Kane; and dear brother Robert Graning (Sally). She is preceded in death by her beloved husband of 39 years Donald Kane; sister Marilyn Wulff; and her parents.
