Carol loved spending time with her family, and it would be hard to find a better chef! Her home was always beautifully well kept and her cooking was something we all looked forward to. Her specialty dishes we will miss, along with the way Carol did our holidays. She delighted in shopping for her “loves” and any gift given to you from Carol, was thoughtful, something you had mentioned to her previously in a conversation, and every present was always beautifully wrapped! That was Carol, she loved us all so much and we will miss her very tender heart. Carol was fierce bridge player, and loved that aspect of retirement with the “old people” as she told the boys when the were little!!! Her family requests in memory of Carol, if you have the opportunity please support any event or research leading to a cure for Alzheimer’s/Dementia.
