I have been privileged to know Carole for decades. She was a faithful and loving friend and my life was the richer for having spent time with her. She was part of the PeaceMakers Quilt group. Some of the members’ comments on our private Facebook page lauded her with words like these: she was a faithful and trusted friend~~~Wonderful woman~~~Carole always had an interesting story to tell and a laugh to share~~~Great lady~~Carole will be missed. I loved the heart of this dear lady.
Deepest condolences to the family. Her quilting “family” at PeaceMakers loved her deeply.
