I want to send my love to all of Carole’s family. She is such an amazing women and to say how special she was isn’t enough. Let’s put it this way, she is the type of women who will bring more joy to heaven, if that’s even possible. My memories of Carole start back when I was a young girl and she was a close family friend and often baby sat me. She was always positive, loving, funny and made everyone feel listened too. She really cared about people and showed it. I’m sure everyone would say when you think of Carole, all you can do is smile. It didn’t matter what stage of my life I was in, from a young girl to a grandmother of 7, she ALWAYS made me laugh. I mean deep down from your belly laugh. I will miss her so, and already do.
Pictures below from 2006 trip from Co. home to be with family and we hung out with Carole for a few days. That was such a beautiful night having dinner on the lake and watching the sunset. As you can see we couldn’t even take a picture without laughing.
Love always,
Karen Hasstedt

Anyone that had the good fortune to know Carol Murray were fortunate themselves. Wherever Carol went fun followed, yet she had a very kind, smart insightful side. I’ve known her since I showed up on the factory floor back in the 80’s, and she became a friend to my wife and I both inside and outside of work. We’ll always treasure the memories we had of her as she was truly special. Our condolences to the Murray family.

Grandma Carol was "everyone's" mom or grandma! She loved with all her heart and the world will be much less fun without her! She will be dearly missed
