Carol was born and raised in Chicago Heights and then moved to Park Forest in the early 1970's. Carol was a lifelong member of St. Paul's Ev. Lutheran Church, Chicago Heights, Illinois. Carol graduated from St. Paul's grade school, Bloom Township High School and attended Beloit College. Carol spent the last 40+ years of her professional life at the Harris Bank in Chicago where she was Vice President of Bonds/Trading. Carol was proud, yet humble of the fact that she was one of the first female bond traders in the country. Carol and her sister Lorna were inseparable and were very active their entire lives. They focused on serving their Lord and sharing their time and talents. Carol taught Sunday School for many years, and along with her sister served on various committees, wrote and directed Christmas pageants and other special productions. They especially enjoyed working on the St. Paul's Archives Committee and preserving the history of the church and school which were a focal point of their lives. Carol and Lorna enjoyed traveling the world, attending the symphony, theater, and especially enjoyed planning and hosting their annual Christmas party.
