"Carole was a loving mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend. All who met her enjoyed her kindness and thoughtfulness, and appreciated her sense of humor. Carole loved flowers, decorating, reading, puzzles, chocolate, HGTV, and music – and Carole was surely one of the most organized people to have ever graced the earth. She will be surely missed, but has left her loved ones a legacy of family, laughter, fun and joy."
