So sad to read about another one of our Hillites' passing.  I did not know Carol but do remember her...  Too bad, too young... R I P Carol.

So sorry that we have lost another classmate. I remember Carol as she was in one of my classes. I remember her as being very quiet and quite smart.

Carol was my friend throughout high school until her death. She was unassuming, unpretentious and a life-long learner. She always wanted to know "why". She was a great reader, a thorough researcher and dedicated data analyst which so suited her in your Phd research work and college teaching. She was very involved in SVSU Osher Lifelong Learning Intstitute (OLLI), following her retirement and return to Saginaw, where she taught, served on board committees and wrote for its newsletter.  She was never one to wear her feelings on her sleeve but she loved her family and always wanted them to be and do well. I will miss our conversations and our walking the Center Courts together. RIP and health.  Betty
