    She had style and grace…and always smile on her face.

  2. I am so sorry to hear about Carol. As a young college graduate I was lucky enough to work with Carol at Chevrolet Motor Division. She was a classy lady that was always so kind to me. I later reconnected with her after I began working with her niece, Kim Werlinger. Peace and prayers to Carol’s family.

  5. Lowell and Family,

    So sad to hear about Carol’s passing. It was such a joy working with her at Town & Country Realty. She was wonderful inside and out and such a great assistant to me! Her sharp mind and attention to detail was unmatched and very much appreciated! Her kind heart and beautiful soul are and will be missed every day. She was the classiest lady I know! Thinking of you and wishing you strength and peace.

  6. So sorry to hear of the loss of Carol. She was a wonderful person, who had great charm. She was a classy lady who raised a family of special people! I’m so privileged to have known her, but especially to have participated in friendships with her family. Looking at my own life, your family has enhanced me both professionally and personally. I thank you all for what you have given me, all obviously given via Carol! I’m so sorry for not being able to be there for you. I’m in Dallas now and viewed this via the web. My deepest condolences.

  7. Fellow Classmate

    We could always count on you being at our class reunions, Lowell you of course.

  8. Carol was a wonderful and caring person. I had the privledge of working with her at Real Estate
    services and Town and Country Realty for many years, and being her friend.
    She loved her family and loved talking about her grand kids and great grandkids.
    I especially loved coming to her home at Christmas time and see how she had decorated. WOW! Her house was dripping with decorations, inside and out! I even bought my boys out to see her and Lowell’s Christmas Village that was set up in their family room – they were captivated by it! We all marveled at her decorating skills.

    Carol was a special lady and will be missed.

  9. Dear Lowell and Family,

    My condolences to you and your family on the passing of Carol. I was always so very impressed with Carol’s true professionalism and her deep love and devotion to her family. I had lost my mother in recent years and read an article that said we may have lived enough years to be an adult but we will always be a child in relation to our parents. Even if one day we find ourselves “parenting our parents” before their deaths, it is the parent of our youth and childhood the we lay to rest. May god be with you Carol. I will miss our chats.

  10. Candy,
    I am so sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing. I know how close you were to your Mom. Hold tight to those beautiful memories and with time it does help the hurt a bit. Thoughts and prayers to you and your family.

  11. Carol was such a gracious person. Her tasteful seasonal decorations gave our Brooktree neighborhood a welcome greeting as we passed by and were a gift of hospitality whenever we gathered in their home. Her wave and smile, as we would meet coming and going to work, brightened the day. We know her passing will leave a huge void for family, friends, and long-time co-workers. Although it’s been a long- time, since our paths have crossed, we cherish the memories and pray for the legacy of love that she leaves as a model for us all. We are so sorry we are unable to join Lowell, family and friends in celebration of Carol’s life on Saturday.
