Will and family: So sorry to her of Carol’s passing. I remember our first Canadian fishing trip when we were young ones and she kinda out fished us. May the Lord be with you and your family.

I remember Carol from her working for several years at Peacock Water. She was kind, helpful and upbeat and we always ended up talking about my years at ONU where I was a professor and mentor to her talented son Matt, a member of the ONU Jazz Band. Her family has my deepest condolences and heartfelt prayers 🙏🏻🙏🏻

Carol, I will forever have good memories of Craft Club and seeing what delicious food you brought in your crock pot. Also watching our kids at SHS and all the events they shared. You will live on through your beautiful family and I’m glad your pain is gone. Until we meet again……. Linda Parish
