  • It is with great sadness that I learn of Carol’s passing. Years ago, Carol was my favorite family babysitter. Years passed and our paths crossed again at the Wilmington Manor Elementary School, where we both worked for many years. Carol was a kind and generous person. She had the patience of a saint! She was a talented vocalist and never failed to amuse the faculty and staff of our school with her costumes and sense of humor at Halloween. Carol loved her family and shared about all of them with great pride. She loved children and was outstanding as our school Secretary; she was loved by the students and their parents alike. She was a beautiful person inside and out! Everyone loved Carol! Carol will be greatly missed. May she Rest In Peace.
