Until retirement, Carol worked as a professional draftsman. Known by her grandchildren as “Granny”, she was also an amazing seamstress and sewed countless costumes, clothes, and doll clothes. She knitted, crocheted, and hand-painted Christmas ornaments. She enjoyed the outdoors, including yard work, campfire sing-alongs and long walks on the beach. Granny had a great sense of humor and often used colorful language. Her favorite things in life were Willie Nelson, babies, and apricot fried pies.
