Carol was a very intelligent, strong woman who had great gifts for planning and detail management. She likewise had a quick wit and good sense of humor.

Carol enjoyed many good friendships and activities including bridge, mahjong, golf, and travel. Additionally, she placed a great deal of importance on hospitality. She always made sure that guests felt welcome!
