Carol attended McKinley High School, was a member of the Goldbugs and the Missouri Genealogy Society. She worked for many years at Pet Milk Company and most recently for the City of St. Louis. Carol resided in Affton at the time of her death.
Carol was fun-loving, had a sense of humor and was known for her quick come backs. She had an unquenchable sense of adventure and loved to travel. It was not uncommon for her to call one or more of her sisters, friends or nieces and say, "let's go to Nes York , or Germany, or Canada or England. She loved to see the world.
Although health issues affected her independence in more recent years, she enjoyed getting out and about with her sisters, nieces and nephews and companion Dick Baker.
Carol was loved by many and we will miss her dearly. The family is especially thankful to her nephew Mark Hassler for the care and companionship he provided by being her wheels and friend.
