Carol graduated in 1956 from Walton High School in the Bronx, then moved to Miami Beach, FL in 1957 with her mother. There she went to water skiing school before moving again with her mother to San Diego, CA.

Before starting her family, Carol got her cosmetology license and worked cutting hair until 1969. In 1964 she became a loving full-time mom. In between raising her children, carol served on the Missions Board and Fellowship Ministry Committee for the First Baptist Church of Rhinebeck. She was also involved in the Women’s Auxiliary and volunteered for many years at the Baptist Home in Rhinebeck.

In 1995 Carol became a nanny to twins, boy and girl, until 2004, but stayed life long friends. In 2005 Carol became a home health aide with Unlimited Home Health Care of Rhinebeck until 2011. She cared for her clients with faithful compassion and love.
