For most of Carol’s life she worked as a banker at the First National Bank in Enumclaw, WA., she took great pride in banking. In Carol’s spare time she enjoyed gardening, swimming and sharing memories with her family and friends. Carol was an avid reader and for a short time she was a volunteer librarian at the Enumclaw library. Carol was a member of the group “Friends of Orting Library”. Carol felt that the answer to any question could be found inside the pages of a good book.
The family extends a special thank you to Miranda for her compassion and kindness while Carol was on hospice. Miranda took excellent care of Carol and was referred to by Carol as “an angel”. Miranda, you have been a blessing and we appreciate you.
