She dedicated herself to raising her family and when they were all in school, she returned to the business world as an administrative assistant for a Temp Company. Carol had an outgoing, friendly personality and she made many friends at work throughout the years.

In her spare time, Carol, enjoyed shopping, traveling with family and friends, socializing with her “Red Hat Ladies” Club and dancing with her husband Bob as members of the Wilmington Dance Club for many years. Carol’s favorite past time was to dote on her grandsons and great-granddaughter; they were the light of her life.

Carol and Bob retired to Naples, FL, where they enjoyed the sun and fun; they made many friends in their new community and had a lot of great times, but Carol always considered Wilmington “her home”.

Carol will be fondly remembered as a special and unique lady; she had an outgoing and vibrant personality; she was a lot of fun to be around. Carol went out of her way to make others feel welcomed and loved; she will be greatly missed by all.
