Last year we had the honor of interviewing Carol as she reflected on her life at Bethel and shared words of wisdom. Below you will find an excerpt — a little window into the wonderful, encouraging, and funny woman Carol was.

We will never fully know the ripple effects of Carol’s 36 years at Bethel, but we know that we will miss her beautiful smile, strength and encouraging words — more than we can ever say.

    Carol was an inspiration. I feel privileged to have been able to work with Carol in the CLIC Consortium for 28 of her 38 years at Bethel. Carol was consistently caring, thoughtful, and cheerful. She always had a warm smile and her laugh was contagious. While I am so sorry she left us too soon, we know she is at peace now. Thank you for putting up this lovely tribute to Carol.
