Carole pioneered the way for woman in this industry for 45 years. She was a member of the Refrigeration Service Engineering Society. Carole loved spending time with her family, puppies, and baking. She loved her home and in the summer you could find her in the garden where you would always go home with a bag of vegetables. She loved making limoncello to hand out to people she knew. Carole loved shopping on Amazon and QVC. She always talked about going to Oak Island to search for the treasure. She also enjoyed cousins' weekend.
