Carol was a wonderful person to know, talk with and have fun with. I was her secret sister one year at church and she was an absolutely joy to send gifts to. Wonder if she still has that "purple people eater" I bought for her one Halloween??? I'm glad she's with Jesus and her husband now, but I still miss her. Love and prayers, Michelle D Chadwell-Talcott & Shayla Chadwell

My deepest condolences to the family. I worked with Carol for 10 years. She was like a mom to everyone. She made you feel like family, when you were not blood related. We had lots of lunches together through the years. My heart goes out to the family. One of the greatest woman I had the pleasure of being my friend. Rest In Peace! Love the Baise’s
