Carol May (Suydam) Westerman of Sterling, VA

October 9, 1932 – February 22, 2021

In the early morning of Monday, February 22, 2021, our beloved mother, Carol S. Westerman, 88, passed away from heart complications in Reston Hospital. 

Carol was born October 9, 1932 in Hempstead, New York and resided in Northern Virginia.  She is survived by her brother (William Suydam), his son (Tyler), daughter-in-law (Emily), his daughter (Karen), son-in-law (Tim).  She is survived by her loving children, son (Jeff), daughter-in-law (Mary), son (Andy), daughter-in-law (Teresa), daughter (Jill), son (Carl), daughter-in-law (Mimi), son (Eric), daughter-in-law (Amy) and eight grandchildren (Michelle, Jamey, Kelly, Sam, Christine, David, Chris, Katie), nine great-grandchildren, (Parker, Kelby, Hailey, Harper, Carter, Stella, Kayla Jo, Collin, Dylan) and Molly her cat.

Her ashes will be interred at Arlington National Cemetery next to the ashes of Navy Commander Christian Carl Westerman III, aka Dad.  Services will be determined at a later date.  In expressions of sympathy, contributions may be made to  the Alzheimer's Association National Capital Area Chapter, 8180 Greensboro Drive, Suite 400, McLean, VA 22102.

We are grateful that she did not suffer long.  God saw she was getting tired and a cure was not to be, so he put his arms around her and whispered, “Come Home to Me.”  A golden heart stopped beating, hard-working hands at rest.  God broke our hearts to prove to us He only take the best.

She will be deeply missed…
