  1. My mom always made us feel special on our birthdays, Christmas, Easter. Having 6 kids, she had her hands full, but she never forgot to make us feel special. She was a phenomenal cook. Best mashed potatoes and gravy.

  2. To the Family of Carol,
    Ive had the pleasure of caring for Carol, she became more then a patient, we became friends. I am so very sorry for your loss and will pray for your healing during this time. I will miss my early morning talks with Carol and hearing how much she enjoyed all of you. I am sure she will be looking down and guiding you. Heaven gained a great lady and I will surely miss her! God Bless, rest easy Carol🕊🕊🕊💖💖

  3. I will always be in your debt for raising such an amazing friend. Rest In Peace, your spirit lives on in your wonderful family and how we know you’ll still be with them.

  7. Dear cousins your Mom was a consistent presence in all our lives. I can honestly say she was always practical, reasonable and KIND. She will be missed. Love Mary and Dennis

  8. Sad to hear of Carol’s passing, she was a strong, loving Mom to our daughter -in-law and her siblings, a loving mother-in-law to our son Steven.
    She will always be remembered as the beloved Nanny to our grandchildren, as well as her many other grandchildren. It is evident from the outpouring of grief of so many what a positive effect she had on so many people, Our prayers are with you all at this time. Rest in Peace Carol.
