Carol loved plants and animals and regularly rescued both. She believed in brownie sundaes for dinner and crunched on ice like a fiend. She enjoyed retirement in the peaceful North Florida woods. She built meaningful friendships in her community and took great pleasure in volunteering at South Putnam Christian Service Center. She was funny and loving and had the greatest light in her ice blue eyes.
Carol was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Robert L. Carlton Sr. and her son Robert L. Carlton Jr.
