Thaddeus, owned a mill and was an engineer for the Wolfeboro Railroad and
her mother, Phyllis, was an antique dealer. As a young woman, Carol moved
to Boston, where she lived at the famous Franklin Square House.
It was in Boston, while working as a legal secretary, where she met and later
married in 1974 her husband George. They initially resided in the
picturesque seaside village of Marblehead, MA, and later moved to their
twenty-five-year residence in Beverly, MA.
Carol was an avid follower of professional golf on television and travelled
with George to various significant golf tournaments, including the US Open.

them to various seaport destinations. Carol loved traveling with George to
Hawaii and Alaska, and they were happy to have seen a lot of the world

time playing cards with her friends, whom she greatly adored.
During their retirement in Florida, Carol and George embarked on many
cruise ship vacations, often in the company of friends, which she greatly
loved. Carol also spent a lot of her free time relaxing by the pool, reading
books, and watching the big professional golf tournaments on television.
