In Memoriam Carol L. Christison


MADISON, WI Carol L. Christison, the President of the International Dairy-Deli-Bakery Association (IDDBA) has passed away on March 4, 2014. Since 1982, Carol’s extraordinary leadership and vision built the IDDBA into the organization it is today. Over the course of her 31 year career with the association, she helped to expand and change the organizational structure of the association to meet new demands and opportunities and to be more self-sufficient, according to a press release. Lucie Arendt, Senior Vice President, and one of the first employees of the IDDBA said, “Carol has built an effective, committed team and our operations have grown and improved every year thanks to her inspiring, innovative leadership. We will miss Carol’s professionalism, creative mind, and friendship.” “We will most assuredly miss her professionalism and her friendship,” echoed William Klump, current Chairman of the Board and Sr. VP of Marketing at Butterball. “We are grateful for all that Carol has accomplished in her thirty years of service. She has been a key factor in the growth and success of the Association. Carol has been at the center of the IDDBA’s transformation into a leading organization, benefitting the whole industry.” Voni Woods, 2013 Board Chairman and Sr. Director of Deli at Giant Eagle Supermarkets said that Carol was a mentor and a role model, “a Woman to reckon with in the Industry of Leaders.” Carol is survived by her daughter, Lucie (Norm) Arendt, and son, David. Visitation is set for Wednesday, March 12 with a Celebration of Life service on Thursday, March 13. Details may be found at the link below.
