Carol was born in Washington, DC and raised in Arlington County, VA. She graduated from Washington-Lee HS and attended Madison College (now James Madison University). She graduated in 1963 with a BS degree in elementary education, and a minor in physical education.  She then began teaching 3rd and 4th grade.
Carol married Norman in 1964.  After having two sons, William & Thomas, she then got involved in fitness & taught a lady’s program for nearly 20 years. Retiring from that, she pursued organ lessons, a lifelong dream, & played for nearly 20 years over a couple of moves, finally retiring from that in 2023. Now it’s going to the Wellness Center, driving to various appointments & looking after things at the house.
She lists; reading, researching family members through, tending to a couple of flowerbeds (weeding!), driving to historical places & enjoying good British programs as well as PBS & network programming among her hobbies.
Carol’s son, William, and daughter-in-law, Julie, are members of our club. She attended several Rotary evening meetings and is being mentored by her sponsor and fellow Rotarian, Julie Wootton.
