She was a loving person who always cared for others, and found a great fulfillment in doing so. She had a quick wit, a sharp mind, and a fantastic sense of humor. Carol was an avid Notre Dame fan, a devote animal lover, and more than anything, she had an immense amount of love for her children, her grandchildren, and her great grandchildren.
