Upon marriage, she moved to Sarnia, Ontario to raise her family, met life-long friends, Norma, Irene, Bea, Joan, Sally, and Carol Anne. She returned to education, teaching English at Alexander McKenzie High School where she discovered a new skill - she was a good guidance counselor, helping students with academic goals and life challenges.

Her love of learning continued while raising a family and teaching, achieving a Bachelor of Arts degree from Western University, specializing in English, and a Masters of Education from Wayne State University. Carol joined the Sarnia Art Association, was President of the local chapter of the John Howard Society, and ran cinéSARNIA. Upon retirement, Carol returned to Toronto and had her dream retirement, attending arts performances every night of the week: TIFF Lightbox (3-5 times a week), theatre, concerts, and ballet. She greatly valued her wide circle of eclectic friends, meeting new people, and having discussions about a range of topics: politics, arts, philosophy. This circle was expanded through her love of travel with visits to the UK, Mexico, India, South America, Hong Kong. Donations can be made in her name to the Toronto International Film Festival, Stratford Festival and National Ballet of Canada. Celebration of her life will be held in Toronto and Sarnia post pandemic.
