I had the pleasure of working with Carol at Coronado in the early to mid 1990's;she was such a nice lady, always with a big smile! If I remember correctly, she got me hooked on Bob Mackie perfume! My deepest condolences to her family.

Carol was a wonderful Student Activities for our daughter, Mary, and became such a good friend and inspiration to us! Her optimistic outlook and constant smile will be so missed. We loved she was a Wildcat too! She is up in heaven shouting "Bear Down"! Tim and Patti Gallegly

I knew Carol at Santa Fe High School and at the U of A. She was my pledge mom in the Gamma Phi Beta house, and I was so thankful for her help and support. Carol was always happy and great fun. Although I hadn't been in touch with her for a number of years, I have many, many fond memories of her.
I am so sorry for your loss.

We are so sorry for your loss. Carol was beloved by all in our Monarch Drive neighborhood and she was an exemplary mentor and role model for my daughter, Soraya, during her years at Coronado High. She will remain in our thoughts and our prayers.

Carol was a fierce competitor in our local duplicate bridge club many years ago. She gave up the game to have more time for your family and work, but we did so miss her smiling face.

We offer sympathy to her family from the Decker Bridge Center and Unit 159, ACBL
