Carol always believed the crowning achievement of her life was her family. It can be found in all she did. She was a devoted member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, a member of the Relief Society, and Temple Ordinance worker. But more important than membership was Carol's abiding love for the Savior Jesus Christ. It was always shown in all that she did and most importantly her interactions with others. Those who love her most will miss her infectious smile.
Carol was also an accomplished composer and musician. Her accomplishments started young as she was the organist for the Episcopal Church in Seneca Falls, NY while still in High School and remained the organist for the churches to which she belonged her entire life. She graduated from University of New Hampshire in Music and Composition. Carol began teaching piano lessons and has blessed the lives of hundreds of students throughout the forty plus years of her career. Her devotion to teaching also included the composing of music for each student. Her compositions have brought joy and comfort to those for whom she mentored and left behind.
