  1. I worked at Kohl’s with your mom. I’ve known her for 15 years. I retired 3 years ago from Kohl’s. But always looked for Carole to get a hug and catch up. She loved her family and grand sons very much. We talked about our kids and Grand kids all the time. She was very proud of all of you. Everyone that worked with her loved her. She was 1 in a million. She will be missed by me when I go back to shop. I have shared her Obituary with people that no longer work at Kohl’s so that they can say a prayer for you all. Prayers for your continued comfort at this time. Robin Setzer

  2. Carol was a very sweet person. I had the pleasure of working with her at Kohl’s for years and she was just full of energy and always kept a smile on her face. I know she will be missed by many because she was a Joy.

  3. Carol was a wonderful mother and friend to all that met her. Definitely a kind soul but could hang it out with the best of them-“ tuff” no doubt. Carol will truly be missed – sympathy to Edana and Jason.
    Much love from the Coggin family
