Carol’s working career was working for Diamond Fruit before retiring and then became a full time farmer’s wife doing whatever needed to be done to keep the farm operating.  In her spare time, she enjoyed her Avon route and the connection with people around the valley.

Carol loved to play any kind of cards and enjoyed dice games.  She was an excellent seamstress, oved to sew and also enjoyed cooking good food and enjoying it with family and friends.  Her favorite thing to do was to enjoy a meal out with family and good friends.

Carol will be remembered for her interaction with family and friends, her smile & laugh, her ability to talk to anybody, and for the remarkable person she was.

Rest in peace “sis”.
