I'm so sorry to hear about Carol. It was so nice growing up on Lawe St. with all the neighborhood kids. Great memories of hide and seek, dodgeball in the street and don't forget the barrel rides!

Carol was one of a kind. If you knew Carol, you might be alarmed to know that she was entrusted to care for children and often babysit my siblings and I, referring to us collectively as her “rugrats” or “toads”. In all seriousness, Carol was generous to those she cared about and remembered the little things, like stocking up on my favorite gum for anytime I came to visit or over-tipping waitstaff. Carol’s lack of filter and outspoken unapologetic honesty regardless of where she was and who she was talking to contributed to many moments that can only be summarized by a “that’s Carol.” One of the amazing things about Carol is that any time spent with her was not one you could easily forget. She was unusually memorable in that way. Even something simple like going to the movies always turned into an event with Carol. It was at the theatre that Carol experienced automatic paper towel dispensers for the first time and it was an incredulous moment for her. She once tried to bring a Little Caesar’s pizza into the theatre. Despite the ticket person’s best efforts to uphold theatre protocol and prohibit the pizza’s entry, in typical Carol fashion she told him exactly what she thought about that and unsurprisingly, managed to swipe a few slices in. She also loved going out to eat and regularly frequented Dick and Jones for steak and lobster or Emmett’s for a bacon pepper jack cheeseburger. She enjoyed chatting with the staff just as much as eating out. Although Carol’s personality could be brazen, Carol had a huge heart. She always asked how people were doing and without fail, would call my siblings and I at least once a week to check in with her customary greeting “Hi – it’s the bitch”. While the phone calls were oftentimes brief - a quick update on the Badger game or how her cat Sam is doing (who is currently next to me pawing for pets while I am writing this) – their regularity was one of the things in life you could rely on. It’s just one of the many Carol-isms that will be greatly missed in her absence. She loved her Little Caesar’s crew who hopefully had a lot of patience and humor. As one of them said “if you never got called a dumbass by her, she didn’t like you”. Well, Carol, there’s certainly whole lot of dumbasses out here who are really going to miss the unique zest that you brought to our lives.

Anyone who met Carol knows how memorable she is. I remember taking her to the movie theaters and she wanted to bring a box of pizza into the theater. The guy who checked tickets told her she couldn't do that and she was like, fine, put the box of pizza in the guy's hands, opened it up, took out a slice, and continued walking into the theater completely unfazed. That was our Carol. You will be deeply missed! <3
