Carol Cramer and I shared so much together. We were colleagues for about 5 years. We shared mutual students, job roles, our middle name and our birth month. Mostly though we shared an aligned sense of humor. Many laughs were shared over difficult situations keeping us both calm, focused and able to return to the job at hand.
Carol was wise. She had a way of randomly calling me at the perfect time, like she knew I needed a sounding board. Carol was always there when I needed her to be and had a way of keeping me grounded though validated and able to keep sight of the goal. Carol was just able to guide anyone through though times. It’s like she absorbed everyone else’s hardships and took the pressure off them. Carol guided countless amounts of her students similarly. She gave them the strength to carry on with their course to reach their end goal.
Carol always went the extra mile for her friends, her colleagues, and her students. I bump in to past students regularly and they always remember Carol and the assistance she provided them. All students respected Carol. I think her ‘have fun but no nonsense’ approach really stood for something and resonated to students’ professions. There is many a fine manager out there due to Carol.
Carol is very missed. It is such a beautiful recognition by EmployEase to provide this scholarship in the name of Carol Ruth Cramer – Role model, professional, moral, loyal, intelligent, wise, brilliant friend and colleague, who has impacted so many peoples lives in such a positive way.
Carol would have been absolutely honored to have known of this scholarship but she would not have boasted about it, she would have simply have said something like “well that’s a very nice recognition of my work”, which indeed it is.
Carol, You are gone but will never be forgotten. Thank you Employease for ensuring that Carol’s legend lives on strong.

I first met Carol when we worked together for another organisation. After a few years, I left that organisation. I then joined EmployEase, only to find to my delight that once again we would be work colleagues.
I was extremely pleased to see a familiar face. Carol made me feel very welcome and at ease as she did with everyone. She was always the first person to offer support to myself and other trainers, nothing was ever too much trouble. Carol was also happy to share her knowledge and experiences not only with trainers but also her students, all of whom were very important to her.
It was always great to have a chat with Carol when working at the same site. Her door was always open. I will never forget these and often learnt something new. Carol had a beautiful way of making your time with her special and for that time, you were all that mattered.
Carol was very committed to her students and had a wonderful passion for the community sector.
Carol was certainly one very special lady.
