Shapiro, Carol J.

March 29, 1934 — November 30, 2018


Carol June Shapiro (Junie), 84, passed away peacefully on November 30, 2018, in Odessa, MO. She was born on March 29, 1934, in Noel, MO, the fifth child of Walt and Edith Shingleton.

Carol lived in Kansas City for more than sixty years, and retired from First Federal Bank, Kansas City. She was a long-time volunteer for the YMCA Indian Guides, and she held a Black Belt in Judo. She enjoyed family gatherings, swimming, and was a green-thumb gardener. Her yard was the envy of the neighborhood.

Carol is survived by her grandchildren, Kasey King and Damon Shapiro, and two great grandchildren; two sisters, Mary Meek and Sandra Barrett, and many loving nieces and nephews. She is predeceased by her parents, her husband, Maurice, and her son, Mark; her brother William Shingleton, and four sisters Betty Wylie, Dorothy Griffith, Marlene McLaughlin, and Sara Payne.

Carol was of strong character and, together with her wit, it shone through, even until the end.

The family wishes to thank the staffs of New Haven in Odessa and Crossroads Hospice for their sensitive care.

In accordance with Carol’s wishes, there will be no services and she has been cremated. Park Lawn Funeral Chapel in Kansas City, Mo has been entrusted with the arrangements.

It was truly hard when my mother had left this world so soon, but luckily I had you as my second mother. Your care, and lifetime of advice, wisdom and laughs, kept me uplifted. That’s why I love you, and you will always hold a special place in my heart. I'll see you again one day in the beautiful blue yonder. Always, and forever I'll love you my "Fiesty Junie" ;)


Carol was a very special person to me. She was my best friend, at times my financial supplier, and my second mother ALL of the time. She could out work most men, and did periodically because the "men" were babe Orv, and Mark. Lol! She had a heart of gold, and would help anyone she could. She will be eternally missed by me (just because, I was her favorite) YEAH BABY!! 😎 I LOVE YOU AUNT CAROL! I know you will have the lawns all landscaped by the time I get up there, but I will miss you. Until then, Sincerely Babe Orv


All of your family LOVED you so much. My Mom always looked forward to working with you on Facebook to build your farms. Thank you for being so strong all of your life. I will never forget and will always be honored to have been able to help just a little at the end. Sandy will miss you so much. She was the real trouper when you needed it. We will talk about we I see you again as you and I believed. LOVE and memories always.
