Carol move to New Jersey where she spent most of her life, but she also spent time in Milwaukee, Delaware and Japan. She adored her grandson Xavier, whom she referred to as "My Boy".
Carol truly became an integral part of the Briggs Family. She kept just a about every Briggs baby that was born, and was known to many as "Aunt Carol". She has lavished us with many delicious meals, including Thanksgiving Dinners. Carol was extremely talented and creative in several areas. She could make the most beautiful floral arrangements or sew a bad outfit. If you needed help with a hose project just call Ms. B. Her caring skills were helpful and greatly needed. Carol was the rock we will all miss. She was young in spirit but had good old fashioned ways "for the real approach" in teaching and discipline. She loved young and old.
Carol was fun and funny sometimes could be down right silly but quite direct when she wanted to get her point across. She could tell you bout yourself whether you wanted to know or not!!! She could give you a look that you'll never forget, point that finger, grit those lips, put those hands on her hips and without words "you got it"
Ma Carol loved making everyone happy and comfortable. She was classy, creative, worked hard. Carol had strength, courage and could handle any situation whether in good times or trying ones.
The Capricorn in her made her dependable, trustworthy and ambitious. Carolyn has touched our lives, like no other. Carol we miss you already. You came through this life, our lives and will forever leave your imprint.
