After a successful career as a hair stylist and a licensed cosmetology instructor, Carol aspired to further her education and subsequently graduated from DeVry University with a degree in computer science. Carol was employed by Fairpoint Communications. Carol had just recently accomplished two of her lifelong dreams, having moved to Florida to bask in the sun by the beach, and getting engaged to the love of her life, her fiancÃ© John Cunningham.

Carol had a zest for life and was never afraid to chase her dreams. She always had a kind word to say and found the best qualities in everyone around her.
