Chub loved animals. During our last conversation, we talked about our horses, dogs, cats, chickens. We both giggled over the story when my Mom was giving water to the chickens about to be dispatched for subsequent meals. She was one in a million and will be deeply missed.

Our family spent every other summer together for our family reunions. Carol was always the life of the party, even late into the night! She had so much care and love for all us kids. I loved reading the frequent cards I got from her for birthdays and other holidays. She always knew what was going on in my life and genuinely cared about my school and personal life. I was always happy to hear her support. She will be dearly missed by all the Maginns.

Loved talking to Carol as she had so many wonderful stories to tell of her life. We talked so much on the phone and talked about all the dogs she had and about my loved Scooter. I will miss her conversations so much. Rest in peace Carol.
