I just received this notice and I'm so sorry. I worked with Carol for a while in Courts at HCSO. She always had a smile for everyone, even when I knew she wasn't feeling well. She was...and still is...a very special lady. May the Lord comfort her family during this trial.

My Aunt Carol was one of a kind. She always had stories that made you scratch your head. But aside from that, she always called me on my birthday and told me she loved me. Out of 26 cousins, she always made me feel special. I will miss that call this year on my birthday.

Carol was one of my favorite people at Galena Park High School!
She was so funny and quick witted! She made you smile just to be around her. Carol was in my Senior English class where Mrs. Maxwell was our teacher. She and I were the only girls in there. I wish I could remember some of the funny things she said in class but alas I am almost 76 years old so my memory fails me.

Everyone will remember Carol pictured in our Senior Year Book as the Most Athletic girl along with Bill Spencer as most athletic boy. She was a also a Jacketeer and in Spanish Club. She was such an absolute JOY to be around! Everyone will remember her fondly.

Earl and I both sympathize with all of Carol's loved ones...we will miss her, too. But she will be "remembered" in so many other ways...she was a wonderful blessing to all who could be around her!!!
Deepest Sympathies, Kathleen and Earl Ellisor

Yes Carol was fond of softball and I played with her for several years while in High School. She was a great 3rd baseman and fiercest competitor. Loved playing with her and being her friend. Great loss but is leaving a legacy with her Children and Grandchildren and selfishness in giving. Will miss you Carol!

I just found out. I am so sorry. I loved Carol so much. She always protected what she called her Deputies. I was one of many. She always had a smile and kind words for you. We stayed in contact for many years after she left. I know how much we missed her then and we miss her now. Rest in peace my dear sweet friend. We have it from here.
