When Carol’s children were young, the phrase “stay-at-home-mom” didn’t exist. It was usual for women to stay home with the children while their husbands worked. Carol was the biological mother of four children. However, many people considered Carol their surrogate mother. Carol loved to cook for all her children’s friends and hosted many pool parties for them. If you were lucky enough, you got to see her famous head-stand, off the diving board. She was talented at crafts and spent time making beautiful creations for her family and friends. Carol, who always had a cup of coffee in her hand, hot or cold, loved to listen to Classical music and Opera’s. Carol adored her grandchildren and also her nieces and nephews and they called her their Auntie “Carrots”. Services will be private for the family.
