Looked up my boss/friend/mentor's name and discovered this sadness! What an amazing woman I had the privilege to know, love and work with! I always wanted to be like her when I grew up! She taught and inspired me at Eicoff. She believed in me when I doubted myself. My heart breaks knowing the world is without her, but I know a star now shines brighter in the heavens. You, dearest Carole, will always remain in my heart and my memories! Thank you for everything!
So sad to hear this news. I got to know Carole on a Diving trip to the Red Sea in Egypt. We instantly became friends and she was an awesome gal, smart, funny, classy and great to be around. We often said we would meet up again but our lives took off in different directions and we were always a world apart but our souls remained close.
God bless you darling girl,
With love forever, Diane and Hani Khalil
I worked with Carole for 13 years in Chicago. She was like the sister I never had. I'll miss her greatly.
Became friends with Carole Soph yr of HS . . . Oh, the fun we had! So much that we remained connected thru the yrs and always got together when I visited Santa Fe. I am blessed to have spent a week with Carole and Patty just a few weeks before she passed in beautiful S.C. As ill as she was. . . . She wanted another trip . . . Love you, funny, beautiful friend.
Carole, I wish I had taken the time to REALLY know you. Wish we could have gotten together when we both lived in Chi town. Adele Croucher-Petersen Escanaba MI
Just came across a festive photo of Carole and I with friends, at Christmas 2012.
How could anyone ever forget your wonderful sense of humor? I loved your funny emails. It was wonderful reconnecting after so many years. So happy we could share a drink at La Fonda last time I was home. Kathy Duran Elmore
My condolences to the Darr family. May you find comfort from God's word recorded at Ecclesiastes 9:5, 10 regarding the loss of your loved one.
Carole was always a great friend to me, she was so strong and so honest, it warmed my heart to spend time with her. Her light will burn forever in my heart....
Carole, You funny valentine. I've never laughed as hard as when reading your emails , particularly your medical updates. Yes, laughing. Thank you for always being such a champion and encouraging me. Your generosity was incredible. I loved the soaps and gifts you would drop by my office. Thanks for being you and for always staying in touch. May your garden be bountiful where you are now. love, Abigail
How fortunate I am to have had Carole in my life. We shared laughter as well as tears for over 37 wonderful, joyful years. She will always be in my heart.
Carole came back into my life three years ago. We picked up right where we left off 50 years previously at Santa Fe High School. We shared memories, laughs, a few tears and special moments during her last visit to San Diego. She was my friend. Go rest high on that mountain girl.
Carole~ I met you in Santa Fe, loved your garden, and you planted mine. As I told you, my garden will be one of your legacies. Also, as of today, I will be taking care of your precious companion, Zelda. She will join my two cats, Karma and Spirit, both of which you named. What a life you led. Stories will continue to be told amongst your surviving friends who were blessed with your wisdom and humor. Love you, friend, fellow Sagitarrian, and Kappa Alpha Theta sister.
We were room mates when we first moved to Chicago in 1964. You had the front and I had the back of a very long Chicago brown stone. We had a blast both getting jobs in advertising. I was in the art department at Compton and you copy department of Leo Barnett. We had dreams of conquering the world of advertising. You did Carole I started having many children. But, those were fabulous memories for me. Marilyn Heaton
so long amiga...we were lucky you were in our lives...
Carole and I shot commercials all over the world and it was always so much fun to work with her! I'll never forget when she came to LA to shoot her first big production with Patti Page! That was almost 50 years ago and we were close friends ever since. Carole, I'm going to miss your funny emails so much! My heart is so heavy. Love always, David Dunn
Dear Carole, my life long friend, you will always be one of my favorite people. Oh, the memories! con carino, Phyllis
Carole was a great friend to my brother, David Dunn of Las Vegas, and although I didn't know her my life was richer as my brother shared her hilarious emails with me...especially when I was down in the dumps. What a trooper...I am sure her parents are hugging her tight! Ginger Dunn Bledsoe
A truly special and wonderful friend. You will be missed by so many. Diane (Rountree) Norton
As an alumna of Northwestern University, I would like to extend my heartfelt condolences to the family of Carole Darr, for your loss, and as you grieve, may God who is the hearer of prayer as spoken of at Psalm 65:2 help you to endure this trying time and grant you peace.
A very special person and a great and fun friend. I will remember her always. Diane (Rountree) Norton
Carole's light will never go out. We will continue to smile and laugh from our memories of a very special person.
I'm sitting in an office that Carole occupied for many years. It was where she interviewed me for a job, and her questions didn't seem to be as pertinent to the job as they were to life, which is why she was so good at what she did. She was interested in people. A western woman, who spent many years in the Midwest. She embraced the hardworking nature of Chicago, while holding onto the independence and toughness of her beloved Santa Fe. The world is slightly less interesting today. Let the party begin...wherever you are CD.
God Bless You Carole, another great SFHS 1960 graduate.

Me too! I always enjoyed laughing with Carole, and enjoying all her stories and of course, never her cooking (although appetizers were good). Hugs to Patty! Laine Renfro
You were loved by so many my dear friend.
Oh my dear, dear sweet friend. I miss you so much and know that wherever you are, you're making them laugh. You added so much to my life.
I really, really miss Carole already. I loved making her laugh. And she loved laughing.
