    I worked with Carol at Evergreen Elementary School. She always had such a peaceful, loving spirit about her. Her love for her students and her coworkers made a powerful impact. Thank you, Carol, for sharing your wonderful gifts. We are all better for having known you.

    I think Carol was 5 when they moved to Clipper. I had my siblings but she was my first playmate. Grade school, high school and then we married brothers. We’ve been through the good times and the hard times. She was a good sister-in-law but also a very good friend. I will miss her❤️Dorothy

    So sorry to read this Sharon. Your Mother was so sweet, and she was so kind to me when we were teenagers and I had lost my Mom. Most of my family is buried at Union Cemetery and I go there frequently to tend to all their graves. Not sure where you are living now, but if you need someone to watch over her gravesite I would consider it a privilege to do so. Again Russ and I send our condolences for your loss.
