I am so sorry to hear of Carol’s passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you all as you mourn the loss of your mom and grandmother. Carol and I grew up together and were classmates from 1st Grade - High School and were in the same 4-H Club for many years. Carol had such a shining, outgoing personality! Her sense of humor was one of her most endearing traits! May she live on in your hearts and minds as you cherish family memories and the love you all shared!

I have so many memories of Carol from our school years together. She had such a ‘Carol Burnett” way about her and even played a part in a skit as her at 4H camp in the ‘60’s. As it happens to so many of us, we drifted apart after graduation but the memories of our younger years remain. Please accept my sincere condolences as you mourn the passing of your mother and grandmother.

Carol was a dear friend. She was the first person to welcome me when I moved to Sparta. Always so kind and warm and welcoming. We remained friends even after I moved away. With 3 other Sparta friends we planned trips together for years and had such fun as The Fab 5. I have so many wonderful memories that I will always cherish. Miss you and love you, dear friend.
