Carol, who died July 17th, was a great Parkway advocate and a wonderful person who will be deeply missed.
I first met Carol several years ago when we were both on the Sacramento History Commission.
She recruited me for the board of the American River Natural History Association (ARNHA), and once I had agreed to that, quickly persuaded me to accept nomination to the presidency of ARNHA, which I also agreed to and happily served a term.
Her work with ARNHA began at the beginning and encompassed the major change a couple years ago when ARNHA was asked to assume the funding and management of the Effie Yeaw Nature Center.
During that entire period her presence and her work was always central to the success of ARNHA.
She embodied the highest attributes of the volunteer and philanthropist, always ready to help out and willing to put an extraordinary amount of time and treasure into those projects she loved, the Parkway being central.
There is a very nice article on her life in the current ARNHA Newsletter, first page.
