Carol was a very unique individual, strong and feisty, but also sweet and caring. She loved being a mother and was proud of her children and grandchildren. She was a child of the 50’s and 60’s and loved music from that era. Carol left a strong impression on people, and will be fondly remembered by many.
Sail on silver girl.
