She graduated from John Marshall High School before going on to cosmetology school to become a hairdresser.

She once built a beautiful cabin and lived in the Sycamore Canyon Wilderness. She also worked for, and eventually retired from, Los Abrigados resort. Carole was a selfless person, volunteering for The Old Town Mission and Bread of Life among others, and she loved her friends as family. She was a member of Calvary Chapel in Camp Verde.

We all go back a long way. "Old Town Cottonwood" when it wasn't old. Sycamore when it wasn't off limits.

We think of your entire family often. Miss seeing Fawn's smiling face and Don's serious outlook on life! Good Man.

Tom, here's wishing I had something very profound to say to make things better for you.. Heaven means peace.
