I worked with Carol many years ago in Pomeroy's Beauty Salon. Carol was one of the nicest ladies I have ever met. She was a fine lady and she will be missed by everyone who knew her. I hope you will always remember the good memories made throughout the years. Wishing you all comfort and peace. Sincerely, Geri(Marie)Smith

I was in and out of her house and she treated me like a second daughter all through high school. I am truly sorry for the loss and hope that her family can remember all the wonderful memories to keep her spirit alive.
