Carol spent most of her professional life in Human Resources, working for various companies. Recently she joined the Lowe's team in the Lawn and Garden Department. She took extraordinary pride in her job caring for the plants, trees and shrubs. She was always willing to assist customers in making suggestions for their gardens and landscape. She especially loved greeting customers with dogs. She adored dogs and made a point to greet them in her neighborhood and at work. Her special feline pet ‘Gypsy’ was a great source of entertainment and company for Carol. Carol's hobbies included cooking, baking, gardening and sewing. She was always generous in sharing the wonderful food she made with others.
