Carol loved her faithful canine companion Booker, and enjoyed watching classic movies, attending concerts, as well as listening to many different types of music. She enjoyed helping others and rarely turned down an opportunity to help care for those in need. Her greatest joy in life was her grandchildren, and spending time with them. She enjoyed being with her family and friends any chance she got.
Carol’s favorite color was purple, any shade of it. The family requests that you wear purple to the visitation and celebration of life as a way to honor Carol.
