Carol was our cousin on our dads side of the family. We always admired her friendly smile, amazing accomplishments, dedication to family and Ort, and her smart style. She will be missed by so many

Carol was a powerful and steady presence in ORT. I can only imagine that she was like that in other areas of her life as well. I feel so lucky to have had the chance to sit with her several times. I especially loved hearing her talk about the ORT Design House. I only had known it as a kid, but she was largely responsible for the whole shebang! I hung on to every detail she shared with me.
She will be sorely missed.
