Here are several photos of Carol. She seemed to treasure her Miller sisters-in-law, Esther Hostetter and Dorothy King. The Miller siblings and their spouses enjoyed many times together in their retirement years even though they lived miles apart. It was noteworthy that each of these couples celebrated 65 years of marriage and beyond! Carol had a ready laugh and always a twinkle in her eyes. The family photo was taken in roughly 1972-73. The Christmas card photo of her children... well, it just makes me smile :)
