Carol graduated from Del City High School in 1969 where she was a member of the cheerleading squad throughout high school and a homecoming queen. She worked at the United States Postal Service for 36 years, held multiple positions throughout Oklahoma and retired from. She loved interior decorating, sewing, reading, shopping, and helping others in need. Carol was a very compassionate, loving, caring wife, mother, and grandmother. She loved OU football, going to OSU games with her husband Rick. She also loved going to live concerts. Some of her favorite music included Classic Rock, Country, Brian Adams, Alan Jackson, Michael Bolton, and Kenny G.

But the most important part of Carol is that she genuinely loved the Lord Jesus. Her faith was exceptional as a Christian woman and a follower of Christ.

We also must mention her little miniature Yorkie, Rylee Morgan, who she was crazy about. She also leaves a host of Del City School classmates, other loving family members, and friends.
