I am writing this for my mother who lived at the Villages in the same hallway as Carol. She always looked for Carol to walk the halls with her and her pleasant smile. She will miss her very much. I got to know Carol very well visiting my mother and then living their for 2 months after I broke my leg. Carol was one of the nicest ladies I know and she always said hello to me when I was out and about in my wheelchair. You have our condolences. Rosemary Roth

Carol was a wonderful lady, and a real asset to our family at The Village. She will be missed at chorus, and in our lobby gatherings.

My sympathy to all her family.
