Carol Ann Natalizio (Clift) Hanrahan was born and raised in Waukesha, WI. After graduating from Mount Mary College, she taught young children, raised 3 daughters in Des Moines, IA, and became a training and volunteer management expert, working at National Council on Alcoholism, Iowa Department of Substance Abuse, and United Way.

Carol was an incredible mother and her daughters will feel the loss as a huge hole in their lives. When her girls were grown, Carol went on another adventure, marrying the love of her life, Denny Hanrahan. They spent their time having countless adventures together. They traveled, biked, walked, and for their 75th birthdays, went skydiving. Carol will be truly missed by many.
