She was a fearless pioneer and feminist. She was and continues to be an inspiration for the countless people with whom she connected. Carole was a wonderful, talented cook (a gift she loved to give to her family and others regularly). She enjoyed traveling and even spent two years traveling the country in a motorhome. She was an avid theater and Cubs fan. She will be greatly missed by her family and friends.
