From there she went on to work for the American Cancer Society and finally working as a bus aide for the Elmira City School District. During all of this time, Carol worked for 50 years with her husband Dave in their business, Dave's TV. Carole had a great love for dogs which led her to having show dogs. Two of those dogs went on to be show champions. She, along with Dave, was a member of the Glen Regional Corvette Club. Carole was a member of numerous needlepoint, quilting and sewing groups, among them are the Piecemakers of Elmira and Undercover Quilters. Carole loved to gamble, which included trips to the Tioga Downs Casino. She also enjoyed having dinner out with friends. Carole's greatest joy was the time she was able to spend with family and friends.
