Carol was my cousin. She was the sweetest kindest most caring person. She helped out my parents as they got older and needed assistance. She was like a second daughter to them. We will be forever grateful. Dale, Corbin, Nate, Joan and family we are so very sorry. You are in our prayers and we all can rejoice in knowing we will be reunited with Carol in heaven. Hugs and prayers! Love Ann, Jim, Sarah, Mark, Vonna, Paul, Elaine, and Ruth Ann

I didn’t know Carol real well, but I do know that she loved other people and was a very giving person. I remember going to her house for several Sweet Charity Christmas parties. So nice of her to open up her home to all of us volunteers. She will be missed by all of us. Praying for comfort for those who are left behind.
