Carol was always a "ray of sunshine" on 3rd floor of Neff Hall. I worked with her at IPFW for 9 of her 15 years, and appreciated Carol's upbeat attitude and the opportunities to discuss her many interests at the School of Business lunches.

Carol had a special gift of making people feel good inside just by being around her. I loved her smile and ready wit, and her readiness to share in your joy. The best of the best.

Ron, I am sorry for your loss. I first knew Carol at IPFW and so admired her positive attitude and competence. She was missed when she retired. I recently enjoyed reconnecting with her on trips--what fun. With sympathy, Carol Isaacs

Ron: I met Carol when we both started working at IPFW a "few" years ago. She was such an upbeat person and always showed kindness to all around her. I don't think I ever saw her without that beautiful smile. She will be missed by friends and family. Both of you shared so many great times giving you wonderful memories to keep in your heart always.

Ron, I knew Carol from IPFW. I got to know her when she would join the School of Business secretaries for "birthday" lunches and Christmas dinners. I will remember Carol with a smile on her face and a positive attitude. I am sorry for your loss. Carol will be missed by many. With sympathy, Bobbi Barnes
