She was born Carol Elizabeth Scott on Dec. 22, 1937 in Philadelphia, Pa. She attended Lycoming College, and worked for many years as a medical secretary.

The members of Carol’s family wish to extend their utmost appreciation to the staff at Sanders Nursing Home for their professional, considerate treatment of Carol, and to massage therapist Ginger Peer for the reassuring comfort she brought to Carol each day. Also, many thanks to Andrews Funeral Home for being so compassionate and accommodating.
