Sharon & family, I’m so very sorry for the loss of your mother. I hope you find peace & comfort from many happy memories.
Carol was such a beautiful and sweet lady. I worked with her at JCPenney. Both Carol and Otis knew my parents and attended functions at the American Legion with them. My sincere sympathy to the entire family.
Bob, Sharon, and Patty, I am so sorry for your loss. Your mother was such a fine person. She will be missed. I hope reading 2 Timothy 4:7-8 may be of comfort to you.

My heartfelt sympathy and prayers to the family, Deuteronomy 32:7 tells us to remember the days of old special moments spent together, valuable lessons given or comforting words shared together can be a source of comfort to the family during such a tremendous loss to the family.
Grew up living nextdoor to her parents in Farmington. Carol was always so nice. Sending my sympathy. Lisa Suydam Newcomb
