So sorry to hear of Carol’s passing. I worked with Carol at RRD in the 60’s and remember her as a really sweet fun-loving gal. As I recall, her husband was in the service at the time and I remember going to her home (which I believe she shared with her father-in-law) and having a great time. Great memories of my time with Carol. I know that she will be greatly missed by her family and friends.
