Carol "Jane" Roach, 64, of Washington, passed away Monday, Nov. 19, 2018, at Daviess Community Hospital.
She was born in Washington on July 5, 1954, to Royce R. and Lillian (Fitzgerald) Gray. She had worked as a beautician for several years and loved going to watch her children's and grandchildren's sporting events and loved her little dog, Gussie. She was an amazing, loving and caring wife and mother, who did everything for her family. She was so full of life and positive energy. She could light up the room with her smile.
