Carol worked many jobs over the years, but her main vocation was to her husband and family. She was a volunteer as a hospice caregiver.

Their first home was in Waubeka, Wisconsin, right across from the Milwaukee River where the family fished and enjoyed water sports. 

She enjoyed many a game of cribbage, pinochle, sheepshead or Wahoo. She also played golf.

Carol always had a hug waiting – even for a stranger. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
