Carol attended grade school at Bay Point Elementary in Port Chicago, CA, and graduated from Pacifica High School in 1961, where she was a Majorette on the baton drill team.  She married fellow Port Chicagoan Raymond Law that same year and they started their family shortly thereafter.  In 1968, the Navy bought out their small town and they were forced to move.  They settled in nearby Antioch and Knightsen for a while and then eventually moved to Lakeview, Oregon.  Even after their divorce in 1974, they remained life-long friends until his death in 2009.  Carol and her children relocated to Klamath Falls in 1979.

Carol had a distinguished career, serving as an owner and agent at Klamath Insurance Center from 1979 until her retirement in 2010. Prior to that, she worked as a Collateral and Safekeeping clerk at US Bank in Lakeview, OR, from 1971 to 1979. She also worked at Crown-Zellerbach Corporation in Antioch, CA, from 1969 to 1971, and as an Administrative Assistant at Mt. Diablo Unified School District from 1957 to 1969.

In her free time, Carol enjoyed various hobbies including dog breeding/showing, line-dancing and clogging, sewing, crafting, crocheting, cooking, gardening, fishing, traveling, bowling, and horseback riding. She served on the Klamath Dog Fancier's Board and helped with their annual dog show.  She served as president of Quota Club International, and organized their annual Christmas Bazaar at the fairgrounds for many years.  She loved to volunteer her time helping children learn to read at local elementary schools.  She was involved with Business Women of America and so many charities throughout the years. Carol was an outgoing, enthusiastic, and helping friend to many in the community.   She enjoyed having fun and was up for any adventure or prank.  She had a great laugh and wonderful sense of humor.  She loved her family immensely and will be deeply missed by all who knew her.

A celebration of Carol's life will be planned at a later date. In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to the American Kidney Fund or a charity of your choice in her honor.
