Carol was an active member of the Genesee Jolly Janes group for many years. She was an avid crafter, which included quilting, crocheting, counted cross stitch and sewing. She loved going to craft fairs and looking for new crafting ideas. She made many of the outfits the girls wore when they were young. If she wasn’t crafting she loved to read.Her cooking was enjoyed by her family and the hired hands that helped on the farm in the summer. A fond memory for the girls and grandkids is that there were always homemade cookies in the cookie jar. In the summer she enjoyed tending to her flower beds and the garden. She loved the annual camping trips and riding four wheelers with family and friends. She was often seen throwing beer cans out the door of the camper as she made beer pancakes.
