Carole grew up in Iowa on her family farm. She graduated high school from Saint John's Catholic High School & then earned her LPN nursing degree from Saint Lukes nursing college in Cedar Rapids. She & Harold farmed in Ladora & Sigourney before moving to Colorado 1972.
After living in the Padroni and Iliff areas for 3 years, the family moved to Holyoke. Carole worked as a nurse at Melissa Memorial Hospital for 21 years, then worked for Baucke funeral home for 17 years. She was a member of Saint Patrick’s catholic church and loved attending mass there each Sunday.
Carole was a caring & dear friend to many in the Holyoke community. She had a passion for flowers and gardening. She also enjoyed doing crosswords and sudoku puzzles, reading, crocheting and traveling to visit friends and family with Harold. Carole brought beauty to everything that she touched as anyone who saw how she transformed her former acreage southeast of Holyoke and her current home in Amherst can attest to.
