So very sorry for your loss. I worked with Carol at Kindred years ago and she was affectionately known as " Ma Howard". What a great loss. Knew she was ill before Thanksgiving and was trying to contact Doug to come see her. Sorry I missed the viewing, I was unaware of her untimely passing. Deepest sympathies.

We're so sorry for your loss. Losing your Mom is hard, but know she'll be looking down on you. Mom found these old photos of Carol when she was young.

I knew Carol for about 45 years. She worked with my mom & dad. So I kinda grew up with her. Then I worked with her she was a special lady. I´m happy I got to see her about a month ago. She loved her grandkids. She will be missed by so many

I hope the family reads posts from the GHMH Retirees - and GHMH Friends page with all the comments from some of us who worked with Carol over the years. I believe she was known to every dept. I worked at GHMH 36 years. I knew her most of those years. I started in mental health and even knew her from there. When I was in Case management, she would always take time to present the patients overall condition. She was always working but always pleasant, sympathetic, kind, and very knowledgeable. She was the best example of a nurse. Sympathy to all her family.

I am sad to hear about Carol's passing. I worked with Carol at GHMH in the 80's. She was one of the best nurses I had the honor to work with. She dedicated her entire life to caring for others showing respect and dignity to all. The last time I saw her was when I visited a Nursing Home. There she was, working extra hours at a 2nd job. My heartfelt condolences to the entire family. Doug, I am thinking of you at this difficult time. Debra Becker

So sorry to read about Carol's passing. I worked with her when she did Per diem work at Hospice Saint John and she knew my Mom from her time at Nesbitt. Great nurse and great lady!
