She met Bob, her husband of 60 years, while attending the Art Center. He was an industrial design major.
As her family got older, Carol worked for the Valley Times Newspaper in Pleasanton in the graphic design department for 8 years. Upon leaving, she joined 3 art groups, where she jumped into watercolor paintings, winning numerous awards over the years.
Carol and Bob have lived in and enjoyed Pleasanton for over 50 years.
Their daughter, Tracy, and her husband Russ, and their two daughters, their families, and three great grandchildren now live in Texas. Their son, Troy, lives close by in Tracy, CA.
