Carol had many hobbies and loved to do crossword puzzles, Sudoku, and jigsaw puzzles. She loved to sew, cross stitch, quilt and was also a wonderful gourd artist. If you knew Carol, you are probably the owner of one of her creations as she loved to make things for her friends and family. She loved to read and enjoyed many mystery novels and books about history. Carol and Richard loved to travel and took many trips after their retirement including Williamsburg, VA, Sedona, AZ, cruising to Alaska, the Panama Canal and the Caribbean. Their favorite place to visit was Maui. A trip to Maui was not complete with a visit to Mama's Fish House.
Carol was known for her happy smile, her caring heart and friendly nature. Carol will be greatly missed by her many friends and family.
