She enjoyed traveling and was an avid runner and member of the Cornbelt Running Club for years. She traveled around the country with her running group and good friend, Mable Velge. She ran 5Ks, 10Ks, marathons and volunteered at the Bix 7 race for many years.
Carole raised three boys Ricci (Carrie), Randy (Katharine) and Rory (Ann). She had four grandchildren that she loved dearly (Ryan, Austyn, Reagan, and Kacie). She was preceded in death by her parents, and also her brother Tom Green.
