She attended Fort Lupton schools where she met her future husband, David Howard. Together they were head boy and head girl and were the charter members of the first National Honor Society at Fort Lupton High School.
After graduating, she received a war time teaching certificate and taught until she married David Feb. 4, 1945.
After the war, they returned to farm northwest of Brighton, where they raised three children, Gary (Donna), John (Diana), and Marla (Howard).
In 1958, she helped form the Country Circle Club which still continues to serve the community. With her passion for card playing, she and cousins played pinochle every month for 60 years. With friends she played what they called the 500 Club. For many years, she and other ladies of the Brighton Methodist Church,cooked and served the Rotary dinners.
The year following the end of WWII, she and her many cousins met for a picnic to celebrate. That picnic has met every year since, and Carol neve, missed even one.
