Carol enjoyed square dancing with Roy and with the group of friends that became like family to them both. This group of friends continued to vacation together and share many great times together even long after they stopped square dancing, these friendships not only blessed the lives of Roy & Carol but the lives of their children as well. She loved cooking (including her famous homemade chocolates which she shared with all her neighbors at Christmas time and her fried chicken), tole painting, sewing and any type of craft, for many years she sewed blankets for her children and grandchildren. She was an avid supporter of any activity or sport her kids or grandkids were involved in. She became a resident expert in all sports as she watched her kids participate, many times her voice could be heard emanating from the stands.
Carol not only loved her children, but she absolutely adored her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. They are the pride of her life, she wanted to see them, visit with them and watch them perform as often as possible. No one could make her smile like they could.
