Carol is preceded in death by her beloved husband, both parents and grandparents, all four of her sisters (Betty, Della, Nancy, Shirley), and one son-in-law, Floyd Duvall.
Carol worked at the Ten Wheeler Café for a few years then went to work for San Juan County Seniors in 1990. She loved every minute of it. She went to work for the Sheriff’s office in November, 1994 until her health stopped her from working in 2006. These health problems eventually took her life. Carol volunteered for the San Juan County Fair for more than 28 years. Even in her wheelchair, Carol could not be kept from the fair.
Carol is gone, but by no means forgotten.
