Carol was a licensed cosmetologist and a member of the Utah State Board of Cosmetology & Barbering. She was a teacher at Snow College where she loved working with students while sharing life experiences. More than anything, she enjoyed the comraderies and friendships she made while teaching.
Carol led a life of service; she held many callings in her ward, she particularly enjoyed her time serving in the Indian Branch. She also served her friends by styling the hair of their deceased loved ones. Carol and Gordon also loved their years of service as ordinance workers in the Manti Temple.
Carol and Gordon spent time in Parker Dam, CA and in their home in Yuma, AZ where she enjoyed the lower altitude and warmer weather. She enjoyed a variety of activities such as reading, writing, baking and staying connected on social media. Everywhere Carol went she made special connections with people that became life-long friends.
