Dr. Carol Ann Freund, longtime resident of Ballwin, MO, passed away peacefully on August 23, 2018, surrounded by her loved ones.  Carol was born to Helen and Water Adams on December 14, 1930, in St. Louis, MO.  Carol married the love of her life, John (Jack) Freund in 1953.  They had three children Karen, Kathe and Jeff (Barbara), 4 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren. She lived a life full of faith, love and of sharing the message of peace.
Carol was an amazing Preschool teacher for 37 years at The Principia in St. Louis, MO and even taught a couple of semesters of Child Development at the Principia College in Elsah, IL  She taught these children about the importance of Love, Discipline, Joy and how to be Peace-Makers.  While teaching she received her Associate and Master Degrees from Webster University and proceeded to get her PhD from Nova University in Fort Lauderdale, FL.  Her thesis was titled A Peace Education Curriculum for Preschool Children.
She gave talks around the world to teachers and parents on the importance of teaching children about peace.  She helped start a preschool in Ghana, Africa called Lovia 37 years ago.  Carol is in Who's Who Among American Teachers, Who's Who of Early Education and Outstanding Educational Improvement Projects.  
She is survived by her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.  She was preceded in death by her husband, parents and brother Walt.  The family would like to offer their sincere and deepest thanks to the owners and staff of Safe Harbor Assisted Living in Longmont, CO, and the entire staff at Canyon Hospice in Boulder, CO.
We know in our hearts that Carol is like the Monarch butterfly which she loved, studied and tracked through the jungles, which after one stage of life, grows into the next even more beautiful and rewarding stage. Mom you are set free to fly now!
A Celebration of Life will be held at 2 pm on Sunday, October 14th at First Church of Christ Scientist at 10939 Ladue Rd, Creve Coeur, MO 63141. In lieu of flowers, Memorial contributions are welcome to the "Early Childhood Program" at The Principia in St. Louis, Mo, in memory of Dr. Carol Freund.
