On Saturday, March 7, 2020, age 85, of Forest Hills. Beloved wife of 45 years of Karl Berkoben Moritz who preceded her in death in 2002, and much-loved mother of Amy Moritz Ridenour who preceded her in death in 2017. She is survived by her loving sons, Karl and his husband Steven Landry of Falls Church, VA, and Christian of Washington, DC; and by her son-in-law David Ridenour of Laurel, MD; and her three grandchildren Jonathan, Christopher, and Katherine Ridenour. Carol was born on Christmas Eve, 1934, in Pittsburgh. She graduated from the University of Pittsburgh with a major in Creative Writing, where she met her future husband and settled in Forest Hills.

She enjoyed gardening, travel (including many camping trips in the western U.S.), financial investing, and healthy cooking. She was a member of the First Lutheran Church of Pittsburgh for many years. She will be remembered for her energy, professionalism, caring, and dedication to helping others.
