She was the daughter of the late Hollis and Marion Hall of Lewiston, Maine. She graduated from Lewiston High School in 1958 and earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing in 1962 from the University of Maine.

While at U/Maine, she met her husband, Daniel and this past May they celebrated their 57th wedding anniversary.

For most of her life, she enjoyed sailing in the summer and skiing in the winter with her family. She was a member of the Osprey Point Yacht Club, Rock Hall, MD and Applebrook Golf Club, Malvern.

When her kids were grown, Carol delighted in her part-time work at the Malvern Public Library; especially being on the team that presented the Children’s Summer Science Program.
