She helped raise Joe’s two children and cared for her Grandpa Rowe. She spent many seasons helping with the One Shot Antelope Hunt and was breakfast hostess to many famous hunters and dignitaries. She loved to bowl and attended Nationals in many different cities. Carol loved Bingo, cards, camping, her many little dogs and later enjoyed doing genealogy. Her friends are many and she felt deeply for those around her.
Carol spent three years in Colorado with her stepdaughter Carrie Joe and Dave Williams and their children Michael, Stephanie and Jeremy before moving to Lovell to the home of Gerry and Rose Mae Tippetts where she resided until a few weeks before her passing.
