In 1936 the family moved to Lawrence, KS for college education opportunities. The oldest sister Esther assumed the role of raising the family.

Carol was best known for her devotion to historical preservation efforts and was an active member of the Lawrence Preservation Alliance for many years. August 1, 1978 she purchased the House Building in downtown Lawrence. Her research revealed it as the only building in downtown Lawrence that survived Quantrill's Raid on August 21, 1863. Through the years, she worked tirelessly to maintain its historical significance and was successful in having it listed on the local, state, and national historic registers. She wrote two books based on her building research: The House Building, A Search for its Foundations and Local Happenings in Lawrence, Kansas 1921-1946. She also put together the book Douglas County, Kansas, Family Histories 1991-1992 Vol. 1. She attended KU studying advertising and journalism.

She was elected to Theta Sigma Phi and Gamma Alpha Chi, honorary journalism fraternities for women. She edited the K-Union, Student Union activities publication; was publicity chairman for the Student Union Activities and was secretary of the Kansas Board, governing body of the University Daily Kansan. She graduated in 1950 with a degree in advertising and received a Master of Science in Journalism in 1971. She started her career as advertising manager at Weaver's Department Store. A free lance spirit led her to a second career in writing. She wrote newsletters for the Douglas County Historical Society, was past President and Treasurer for the Kansas Press Women and won numerous awards for her advertising, interviewing and writing skills including the Clarion Award in 2008 from the Association of Women in Communications for her I-Pod version of "Walking Downtown Lawrence". Carol joined the Girls Scouts in 1938 and served in many capacities including the 1st Executive Director of the Lawrence Girl Scout Council. She was also very active in the Lawrence Aquahawks swim team and was 1st meet director. She was deeply committed to Trinity Episcopal Church and served on many committees, in the choir, as a lectern and Sunday school teacher. She was instrumental in the major remodel of the church. Carol was also a member of Delta Gamma Sorority and won the Cable award for her outstanding loyalty. She enjoyed needlework, camping, canoeing, hunting, and swimming. She logged over 1400 miles in a canoe with the Ozark Wilderness Waterways club and won numerous medals swimming in the Senior Olympics at the national level until her early eighties.
