She was in the first graduating class of Hamrick Grade School and a graduate of Parsons High School with the class of 1946.  She had worked in her Fathers Store at the old J.E.

She was a member of the P.H.S. Alumni Association and recipient of the P.H.S. Hall of Fame Award.  She took great comfort in reading her bible, her favorite passage was John 14, 1 – which says, “Let Not Your Heart Be Troubled”.  Great comfort was bestowed upon Carolsue through her closeness achieved through reading the Lord’s scripture.  So much so that she carried the above verse in her pocketbook at all times.
