The members of Henrico Retired School Personnel Association extend their condolences to the family of Carol Townes and our appreciation for her many years of service to students and staff in our schools. We also appreciate Carol's faithful membership in HRSPA and, on a personal level, I am so sad to learn of Carol's passing. She and I had worked together for years in Henrico Education Association when teaching and then again in our retirement in HRSPA. She was diligent and always willing to assist and often had a laughable insight to situations. I enjoyed our occasional lunches and will miss catching up with her now and then. She will be missed.
