I was so sorry to miss the wake and service. I served on the Alverno College Alumnae Board with Carol. Working with her on the Board was my first experience of Carol. I admired her quiet strength and insight. She will be greatly missed. My sympathy to her family and friends.

Carol will be greatly missed. This news saddens my day. Only a few weeks ago she announced my retirement on her extensive network. We became close friends during the first community health assessment conducted in Shawano County and remained close throughout the years. She and Jim were part of WPHA for so long I cannot recall a time without them. Public Helath in Wisconsin has lost a great leader. My condolenses to her family and many friends.
