Palin Friend, SarahPAC Employee Dies of Cancer



When any Palinista sent or received correspondence from Sarah Palin, it was processed by Mrs. Carol Ryan, 72, a SarahPAC employee. Carol died last night after a long battle with brain cancer. Carol was born in Whistler, AL and spent her early years there. She went to C.F. Vigor High School in Prichard, AL. She was a regular fixture at ladies luncheon class reunions, going as far back as her first grade class in 1950. She loved her gardens, home-cooked recipes, and her adopted home state of Alaska. Photos and videos highlighting Alaskana were a staple on her Facebook timeline. A devout Christian, Carol was a parishioner at the Big Lake Baptist Church. She married her husband, Dan on July 31, 1963.

Carol was part-time SarahPAC employee processing incoming and outgoing mail for the Palins. Thus, she touched the lives of every Palinista with whom Sarah Palin had correspondence over these past eight years. She was proudly on board the #TrumpTrain.

Carol is survived by her husband Dan, 74; her son Jason, 47; her grandson Walker, and granddaughter, Taylor. They had a son Daniel, who died at age 27 of aneurysms on the North Slope. He had been friends with Sarah Palin since he was 7.

Carol Ryan: July 10, 1944 – November 5, 2016

Funeral arrangements are pending.
