Carol was known to many as “Mamaw” and she could not have been more proud of that title. She loved cooking and made sure no one ever left her house hungry. Her favorite times were when her family would come to her home to eat dinner and spend time together. Carol spent the past seven years taking care of her first great-granddaughter, Kianna, who she loved dearly. Carol and Kianna shared a special bond that will always be cherished. She loved all her grandchildren and great-granddaughters and always made sure to attend all the events that she could. She was an avid fan of all sports but made sure to never miss a WVU game. Carol left an impression on every person she met and will be sadly missed by many.
Carol’s request was to have private graveside services at the South Webster Cemetery which will be June 4, 2020, at 1:00 p.m. Arrangements are being handled by D.W. SWICK-NELSON FUNERAL HOME in South Webster.
