She met her husband Roger in a defense plant during WWII and they married in December of 1944. Later, in the 1950's, she began a work career as a sales clerk in the women's shoe department at the Carlisle-Allen Co. in Painesville,, where she worked for nearly 30 years. Over the years Carol and Roger raised three sons and enjoyed summer vacations in Canada and, in later years camping locally. She was married to Roger for 40 years until his passing in 1984. A few years later she married her second husband, Cy Bowyer and lived in Chardon until his death in 1995. After that, she purchased a condo in Painesville Twp. and remained active and driving until she was 90. At that point she moved in with her youngest son, Randy and his wife, Diane in Montville.
