Sniger, and Susan Nash and husband Adam; Loving MeMe to Robert, A.J., Mason and Lilah;
Carol worked at Boston Globe for 20 years and retired to fulfill her dreams of traveling the US and Canada in their motor home named Baby. Her favorite destinations were Disney Fort Wilderness, yearly trips to FL, West Coast 2X, Niagara Falls on the Canadian side, and Lancaster, NH. The trips she talked about the most were the Albuquerque Balloon Festival and seeing a night time Space Shuttle launch from a bridge near Cape Canaveral (the last night launch to date). Too many other destinations to list but she has seen more parts of this country and Canada in the last 13 years than anyone could dream of, 100,000 miles worth of memories. Carol enjoyed bringing her grandchildren to Santa’s Village and Mountain Lake Campground. She also enjoyed watching Robert, A.J. and Mason play sports and playing endless hours of board games with Lilah. Carol also loved hosting Christmas each year.
