Carol worked at Letchworth Village for many years and was always kind and gentle to those less fortunate and those who suffered from both physical and mental illnesses.

She always had an extra step in her gait when she visited the casino with her family and friends.  Carol always hosted the family for the holidays and enjoyed watching and encouraging her children and grandchildren in sports and dance over the years.   

She will be greatly missed by all that knew her.
