Carol was born in Arcadia, CA in her Grandma Zimmerman’s home on August 13, 1940. Carol was raised in Southern California and moved to Minnesota after marriage. Carol had many passions in her life, most importantly her children, grandchildren and her love of animals, especially her many dogs. Carol loved to talk and had the gift of gab, she had a very dry sense of humor and loved a good joke and laugh. Carol loved sharing her passion for football and her favorite team, the Minnesota Vikings. Carol loved all types of games, game shows, board games, cards, and with her favorite color red, we all knew her team would be the red team. She loved music, especially Elvis and good ole country music. Carol was an avid collector of many things and her home was a display of all her favorite collections. Carol was a witty poet and, yes, she did know it. Her friends and family would enjoy calling Carol, expecting to hear her latest witty poem that she had on her answering machine, the message would have you laugh and smile.
Carol will be deeply missed by her family and friends. Private family memorial services are planned. Memorial’s preferred to Minnesota Humane Society. (www.mnhumane.org)
