Carol graduated from Ramona High School in 1967 and went onto nursing school to become an LVN. During high school, she worked many hours in the family cabinet shop with her brother Bud and her parents. Carol had strong work ethics that showed thought out her life.

In 1973, Carol found her soon to be husband of 45 years, James Becker, while on a desert trip with her brother at the Glamis Sand Dunes.

Carol, Jim and the kids traveled around to different craft fairs in San Diego and Orange County selling the products. The last crafty things she made were sewing quilts, placemats and other amazing products. She would donate her sewed products to organizations such as Project Linus, which gave lap quilts to children in the hospitals and airplane flights to and from home and hospitals. She also donated products to fundraisers for the Ramona High School music program, and Ramona Junior Fair to help local Ramona youth programs. If there was a way to give, she would find it.Carol was preceded in death by her parents, Alfred Haynes and Marjorie Haynes.
