Carol was born in Colorado Springs, Colorado on September 17, 1939. She spoke often of the many happy memories of her childhood between the Springs and her Grandparents farm in Ramah.
Carol married Bill Williams on June 29, 1957 in Denver Colorado. Their life was blessed with the birth of three children. The family moved to Amarillo, Texas in January of 1965.
Carol was a homemaker and enjoyed spending time working for the Caprock Net, CB radio emergency response taskforce, (original “storm chasers” in the Texas Panhandle) that she and her husband founded in the late 60’s.
Carol lost her beloved husband Bill in 1973 and raised her children with the help of her grandmother “Bimmey”.
Carol married her soulmate Jimmie Lee Fiel on October 4, 1985. They shared a wonderful, happy life until he passed away on June 3, 1998.
Carol was the strength in her family, surviving cancer twice and always offering guidance in troubled times. Her favorite words of encouragement were “God already knows how this ends, but you have to walk it out, and that’s the hard part.” Carol will be most remembered for her quirky sense of humor, her laugh, take-charge attitude and stubbornness!
Carol loved “critters” especially wolves, cabins in the woods, mountains, the Steelers and Notre Dame, but mostly her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren and extended family.
Carol is survived by her daughters, Dona and husband Brent Leedy, Robbyn and husband Kevin Hart, Brenda and husband Tim Denbo.
