So sorry to hear about Carol. She was the kindess person that I have ever met. She was always thinking of everyone else around her. She was a blessing to my family when we where going thru a tuff time while Corey was in high school. She is a beautiful angle in heaven now. Her smile will be missed.

Carol was so GRACIOUS and SWEET SPIRITED. I never heard her say one bad thing about another person. What an HONOR it was to know Carol and to be able to share some of her life in the First Baptist Church in Scottsbluff. She was the organist and piano player for our choir! Always Faithful to her commitment to GOD and the church. She was TRULY the example of what it is to live for CHRIST and to stay TRUE to HIM and those in her life to the very end . Her walk of FAITH will be GREATLY REWARDED. Praying for all of your family and friends and share with you in your sorrow of losing your Mom !

The sadness of receiving the news of Carol's passing is truly tempered by knowing that God has welcomed her into His eternal Kingdom. Her love and talent of music is being put to amazing use as she is now a part of the greatest music in all creation praising the Lord she so loved. Carol and Darrel were beyond special to anyone who knew them, and their friendship with this retired pastor and wife is a highlight of our time spent at First Baptist. Sing on, good friends, sing on!
