She was born March 30, 1944 in Manchester, N.H. a daughter of the late Francis and Margaret (Gunderman) Walker.

She enjoyed taking care of her animals, especially her horses; she loved all children, whether they were her children, grandchildren or the many foster children and exchange students she housed. Carol also enjoyed antiquing and going to auctions.
