Born in Houston in 1952 Carol was a graduate of the University of Houston (BA). She taught kindergarten to hundreds of children over her 29 year career; many at Parker Elementary in Southwest Houston. Carol had a love of the outdoors and travel. Her interests were cooking and gardening. And she was a steadfast caregiver for her mother Alma.
Carol and husband Gary were married overlooking the Pacific ocean in Maui and were together for 34 years. They built a lovely home, traveled widely in America and experienced all the national parks in the Western United States, Canada, Alaska, and Hawaii. Carol's passion for baking often meant family got to sample her wonderful culinary creations first.
Carol was a private person but close friends recognized her compassionate nature. Those that knew her well enjoyed her dry wit and funny commentary about life. It was often said that a conversation with Carol left them wanting more of her intelligence and insight.
