Carol Harshey was born November 13th, 1946 in Terre Haute, Indiana to Herbert and Ethel Truxal. She was the sixth of 10 children. Her father was a coal miner, and after his death from working in the mines, Carol spent the remainder of her childhood at the Vigo County Orphanage.

She graduated from Gerstmeyer Technical H.S. in Terre Haute in 1965. Carol came to Indianapolis in 1966 and married Norris "Bud" Harshey.
