I will always remember my Aunt Carol as a very special lady. She had a positive outlook on life and an upbeat spirit... She was a lot of fun and always had much enthusiasm. Whenever our families did get together which was never really quite enough , we shared stories, laughed and had great memories of our time spent together. When I was a young girl growing up I thought ..I want to be like my Aunt Carol and my Aunt Kathy. They are both precious to me. I am deeply saddened that Aunt Carol had to live with Alzheimer's so long. She rests in peace in heaven now with our Lord Jesus Christ. Thank you God for our beautiful Aunt Carols Life. I adore her and I will miss her so much. Love to all Patty Dear Dawson

Anne, Jane and Sarah, my thoughts are with you at this time of your mom's passing. Just thinking of her makes me smile - she was always so "up" and full of life. I remember seeing all of you on the 4th of July celebrations and the other times our families would get together... Aunt Carol was just the kindest and most "with it" woman, always talking to us kids as she really cared about making the connections. She was a very special lady. Virtual hugs to all of you, including your mother, may she rest in peace. Love to all of you, Jennifer Thomas

What a wonderful, kind person! I saw Carols smiling face every year on Monday of Memorial Tournament week when I picked up my credentials. Naturally, she was nearby as we sat through a lot of weather delays. She always seemed happy and accommodating. We in the media were all fortunate to have her shepherding us through the week. Thanks for sharing Carol with us.

I am so sorry to read of your loss. Carol will always have a special place in my mind.I have fond memories of playing tennis with her, sometimes sharing more funny stories than hitting tennis balls. Quick to smile and share a good laugh.One of a kind. It was a privilege to know her.. Sincerest condolences, Jeanne Norton
