Daughter of the late Kenneth & Helena (Shimansky) Snow, Carol was raised and educated in Clinton and Lancaster and was a graduate of the Nashoba Regional High School, Class of 1962. In addition to raising her children, she worked as a quality control inspector for Carbalon, Inc. in Sterling and later with Res-Tech in Clinton, from where she ultimately retired. Carol enjoyed cheering for the New England Patriots, and all Boston sports teams. Always thinking of others, Carol frequently checked up on her family, friends, and neighbors and never arrived empty handed.
