Carol was born in Staten Island, NY on October 27, 1959. For many years, she owned and operated the Cardinals Family Daycare and was a Girl Scouts Leader for Troop #1120 in Watkins Glen. Carol worked for the Schuyler County OFA for many years, cooking and preparing food at the Silver Spoon Café. She loved and adored her friendships with clients at the café. She also worked as a cook at Wegman’s in Corning. Every Christmas, she would always think about the less fortunate and donate to someone.

I want to express my condolences to Carol's family. I am so sad to hear of her passing. We knew her as Mousie. She spent a lot of time at our house up in Hector as a child. She was close with my sister and Jane. Later, as an adult, she lived down the road from us once again and we reconnected as adults. She was supposed to join us for a family gathering last summer when I was home but unfortunately couldn't make it. We just assumed that there would be another time. Carol was a good friend. My family was blessed to have her touch our lives. I will keep you all in my prayers.

Crystal Moran Posted at 07:42pm

She loved you and your family so much. Thank you for the kind words.

So many memories to share but one of my favorites was when I was in New York at Carol's house and she went and got her hair cut short and she got back home I told her how nice it looked on her and she got all happy and said good you got to get in the car I made an appointment for you to get your haircut just like mine so I went and I got my hair all cut off and I hated it but every day she told me how beautiful it looked the big smile on her face no matter how much I hated it every day she made sure that she told me how beautiful it was

My childhood friend in Logan. Playing barbies and tromping in the backyard. Memories that are vivid to me. We lost touch when Carol lost her beloved Mom. Our friendship reunited while we both worked at the Office for the Aging. Once again finding ourselves remembering days gone by and supporting one another as friends do. I will miss you my dear friend. Thank you for being in my life.
