Carol lived the happiest years of her life in Lakemore where she raised her two daughters. She never met a stranger and continuously hosted guests in her home. She loved to cook, swim, the Cleveland Browns and travel to new places. Her grandchildren were the lights of her life and her favorite title in this life was "Nana."
During the 90's, Carol owned Red's Cafe and The Double Eagle establishments in Barberton when she was affectionately known to everyone as "Maw." In addition, she championed organized labor as a union organizer.
Numerous health issues took an awful physical toll on Carol's body. However, her infectionscious smile, laugh and inviting spirit never faltered. She never entered a room and left without a new friend.
