Carol had a passion for service to others. In 2007 Carol and her family, husband Terry and daughter Kelsey Grant moved back to Terry MT where Carol worked as a bartender at the American Legion in Terry until her passing.
When Carol was diagnosed with cancer, her main concern was not being able to see her daughter Kelsey graduate High School, but the wonderful community of Terry and Prairie Community Hospital made her wish come true. They did the graduation at the hospital which helped Carol leave this life in comfort to see her lovely daughter graduate High School as a valedictorian. Kelsey plans on continuing her mothers legacy of service to others as she pursues her degree in medicine this Fall at MSUB.
