Carol Brooks Kendrick, passed away peacefully at Dominican Hospital on August 9th after a brave and courageous battle with complications from a pulmonary illness. She was 72.

Born in San Francisco, Carol spent most of her early years in Long Beach. Following her graduation from UCLA, where she was a member of the Alpha Gamma Delta sorority, in 1955 she joined Pan American World Airways in New York as a flight attendant on flights to Latin America. Due to policy at that time prohibiting married flight attendants, she resigned in 1958 and married Martin, her husband of 47 years. They lived in Manhattan and several suburban New Jersey communities until their relocation to Aptos in 1989.

Carol was a kind and gentle person who never had an unkind word to say about anyone. She loved to needlepoint, sew, do any kind of handwork, play bridge with her friends of the Mid County Senior Center, and, above all, solve crossword puzzles. She took particular pride in her ability to finish the New York Times Sunday Puzzle in less than one hour.

She is survived by Martin, her loving husband of 47 years, daughters Kristen Willig of Hillsborough and Kerry Christensen of Ridgefield, CT; her sons-in-law Ed Willig and Doug Christensen; her six adored grandchildren, Emily, Brooks, and Claire Willig and Brita, John, and Will Christensen; and her brother Robert Brooks and sister-in-law Gail of Lake Forest.
