She left the medical field in the early 1990’s to follow her heart and opened an antique and collectables business, Carol’s Collectables, located in Pelion, SC. In her retirement, she loved caring for her granddaughter Lydia. She often took Lydia her with her “antiquing”.

The family requests that any memorials be made to BBN Radio PO Box 7300, Charlotte, NC. 28241   She found great comfort in listening to their programming during the last Years of her life.  The family would also like to thank the caring staff at Heart of Hospice who were indispensable in her last months.
