She attended schools in Youngsville, Pa., Jefferson Community College in Watertown, NY, and SUNY School of Nursing in Utica, NY, where she earned a Bachelor of Nursing degree. For many years, Carol worked as the charge nurse for the orthopedics floor at The House of the Good Samaritan Hospital in Watertown, NY. After retiring from nursing, she accepted the position of Volunteer Coordinator at The Haggai Institute in Maui, HI where she was blessed to work for 10 years with her husband, Fred. Shortly after their retirement, Carol and Fred relocated to Seaford to be near family. Carol always enjoyed sewing, reading, and gardening, and was proud to achieve Master Gardener certification. In her later years, she especially enjoyed her cat, Max, who was her constant companion.  Carol deeply cherished time spent with her family; she was a loving and devoted wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend. 

Carol was an active member of First United Methodist Church in Warren, Pa. and after moving, St. John’s United Methodist Church in Seaford.
