Carol worked at Therm-O-Disc, San-Dar, Smith Hardware and McDonalds.  Always working with people, Carol made friends easily, and genuinely liked helping people.

She was an excellent seamstress, making clothing for her girls, and enjoyed quilting blankets.  Always very busy and energetic, Carol liked baking and her family enjoyed all kinds of goodies from her kitchen.  A friend of nature, she liked taking walks, riding her bike and gardening.  In the quiet times she liked sitting down with a good book or working crossword puzzles.
