Carol was our beloved mother, grandmother and friend to all she came in contact with in her lifetime. She was typically surrounded by “alotta laughs” when visiting with friends and family. She dedicated her life to caring and service to others. She was one of the most helpful people on the planet, but never took credit. She just made things work for the betterment of those around her. She reigned as domestic goddess aka/or as she called it: domestic engineer. She made the best macaroni-n-cheese, and her culinary talents were well known to all her enjoyed her delectable dishes. As further evidence of her service to the external world, at one time, she had been President of the Woonsocket Women’s club. 

We love you, Mom/Mim/Carol! We will miss your quiet and calm demeanor dearly!!! Rest in peace. We pray, hopeful in faith that you are surely in heaven as an angel! 

We will continue to Keep the FAITH – found again in a higher power=, and hopefully try to live up to your Power of Example, and standards keeping our lives and homes and communities united, immaculate and in order!!!!!!!!!!   

We love you and will dearly miss you – Mom - Mim!
