On Saturday, March 13, 2021, Carol Ruth Marggi Hahn, loving wife, mother, sister, grandmother, aunt, and friend, passed away peacefully at the age of 83. Carol was born on December 14, 1937 in Vancouver, Washington to Herb and Helen Marggi. She had a wonderful childhood with her three sisters and one brother.

She also had three grandchildren, two granddaughters-in-law, and sixteen nieces and nephews, and was soon to be a great-grandmother.
Carol graduated from Hillsboro High School in 1955 and established many lifelong friendships. She adored her family and never missed an opportunity to get everyone laughing. Her love of life and delightful laugh were felt by many. Carol loved to fish and caught her first fish at the age of 6 on a safety pin in the little creek in front of her home. Her love of fishing continued throughout her life. One of her favorite fishing trips was for halibut out of Depoe Bay. Carol loved children. She started a cooperative pre-school because she said her daughter Teresa was shy and pre-school would really help her. She went to college with her daughter Tammy and earned and Associate Degree in Early Childhood Education. Carol founded two more schools, one with her sister, Nancy, and one with her daughter Tammy. Carol touched the lives of many children over the years. She was a Master Gardener and planted one of the first organic gardens at her pre-school. In her memory, please plant a new, beautiful flower in your garden.
A graveside service for family was held in Oregon City.
