Obituary

Carol was born on February 23, 1943 in Minot, North Dakota. She lived on her grandmother’s

farm with an aunt during her early childhood. She later moved with her parents to Seattle,

Washington. When she was in her late teens or early 20s she moved to Waikiki, Hawaii and

lived with her aunt Mildred Christofferson. There she worked as a bartender. She met her first

husband Donald James Nicholas in Hawaii. He was a member of the Coast Guard. They wed in

Hawaii 1965. Carol welcomed the birth of her daughter Diane in October of 1966. She was

sadly widowed the following year. Carol moved with her daughter to Colorado to live with her

in-laws. She had met her second husband while she had been living in Hawaii and after a long

distance relationship they wed February 7, 1969. She and her second husband Roy were

married for 49 years before his passing in 2018. Roy was a member of the navy so the family

moved to different ports of call. They lived in Virginia, Connecticut and San Diego, California. In

San Diego, Carol worked as a league secretary for a bowling alley. She was an avid bowler and

the job fit into her life. In 1981, Carol and her family moved to Sonoma. Carol began to work as

a member of the kitchen staff for Hannah Boys Center. She eventually became The kitchen

manager before her retirement. Carol is preceded in death by her husbands Donald and Roy,

and survived by her daughter Diane Forney, Diane‘s husband David, and her two grandchildren

Michael and Sean Forney.

In lieu of flowers Carol had wanted donations to be made to either the ASPCA, because of her

love for dogs, or the Wounded Warrior Project in honor of her husbands.
