We met Carol and her family when her son Chris married our daughter Kathryn. What a wonderful addition to our family! Through the years we have spent many Holidays with David and and Carol. Carol was very easy to be with. She was kind, soft spoken, and always accepted our big crazy family as we were. She always shared her culinary talents with us. Our personal favorite was her potato salad. We were blessed to have Carol in our lives and we are grateful for the gift she gave us of her son. Chris is so devoted to Kathryn . We cannot imagine not having him in our lives. Our love goes out to David, Chris/ Kathryn, Chad/ Melissa, Karis/ Rick and all of Carol and David's grandchildren. She loved you all dearly and you were the center of her being. May she rest peacefully now and may you your hearts be filled with her precious love and unforgettable memories!
Lovingly, Kim LaMaster

If it was a family gathering on a holiday or other special occasion, we always looked forward to indulge in whatever great dish Carol had brought for the table! Wishing you great memories and sending love and warm thoughts to Uncle David and cousins.

Carol, her two older sisters and I were cousins. For several years we were all dressed alike at Easter. I wish there was a picture to share.
Not having seen Carol much during our adult years, it was amazing to see how involved she was in lots of aspects. She was a super busy lady. There will always be sweet memories of her in our growing up years.
Rest in peace, Dear Carol.
