She was one of many military dependents who left Pearl Harbor before its attack, leaving behind her Navy father who luckily survived the attack as his ship was not in the harbor at the time. She grew up in southern California and graduated with an Associate’s Degree in Accounting from San Diego Junior College.

As a Navy wife she traveled the country as well as the world. Stationed in Taiwan in the 50s, she was able to tour much of Southeast Asia.

Carol’s interests included Bridge, bowling, and being a voracious reader. She loved to brag about her family and enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
