They welcomed three children to their family, Ronald Thomas in 1967, Lisa Mae in 1968 and Dean Alan in 1970. They lived on the Streit family dairy farm until 1980 then moved north of there where they continued with a grain farming operation.

Carol worked at the Alpha Creamery early on and then the Heart Haven Lodge until her retirement where she resumed farm life. She enjoyed her interactions with the seniors and fellow workers, making some long-time friends.

Carol enjoyed curling in Botha and a good game of cards with family and friends.

She is remembered as a hardworking woman with a big heart, a flair for cooking and a green thumb, growing magnificent vegetable and flower gardens which, she shared with family, friends, neighbours and anybody that popped in.
