Carol enjoyed entertaining her family, priding herself in preparing delicious gourmet meals nightly. Everyone was welcome. Her yard was filled with beautiful flowering trees, shrubs, and flowers. Yoshino cherry trees were her favorite. The deck was always lined with potted flowers of various colors; just beautiful.

In lieu of flowers, Carol has asked that any donations remember “Ladies by the Sea,” a Holy Redeemer Church women’s group, and “Knights of Columbus LAMB” (Least Among My Brothers) program.
