Carol was born in Twin Falls, Idaho, on May 3, 1950, to Robert O. and Jeane T. Carlson. Carol graduated from Buhl High School in 1968 and went on to earn a Bachelor of Arts degree from Idaho State University. Carol held a position with the Chamber of Commerce in John Day, Ore., where she met and married the love of her life, Jerry Layne Garrison, on Nov. 11, 1989. Later they moved to Boise, Idaho, and both of them held positions at Boise State University. Jerry passed away on Dec. 12, 2003, and, at this time, Carol returned to Buhl and found a position with the Buhl Public Library. She worked there until November of 2009 when her health failed her and forced her to retire.

Carol and Jerry will be laid to rest at a predetermined place at a later date.
Carol will always be remembered by her family and friends for her ever present smile and her upbeat attitude.
