In May 1948, near the completion of her freshman year at Geneseo High School, she became ill with rheumatic fever, later diagnosed as ankylosing spondylitis, and received her diploma after several years of home study. Through all her pain and challenges she never complained. Carol was Hanna-Phenix Township correspondent for the Geneseo Republic for many years, sold greeting cards and did some office work from her home. She was a member of the former Ebenezer Community Church, Women’s Missionary Society and Geneseo Senior Citizens.
