    I had the honor and pleasure of working with Carol at the paper mill back in the early 1970’s. She worked hard … laughed easily … and was kind to everyone. She was such a good person. Seeing her always made me happy. She had that effect on people. I will always remember Carol with great fondness. My heart goes out to you with deepest sympathy. Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.

  10. I am saddened to hear of Carol’s passing. I always enjoyed running into Carol in Escanaba, usually at the Sav-Mor, IGA. My parents, Betty and Runar Beck loved to visit Carol, Elaine and Vicki, of course, and sometimes I was allowed to come along. I am one of Carol’s cousins as my dad, Runar and Einar were first cousins, I believe. Carol will be sadly missed. Love to all, Nancy Beck
