  1. It was always a joy to work with Carol when we worked for McDonnell Douglas at NASA from the early 1990s. She was beginning her jewelry business and later opened up a very unique shop in Kemah. Our team at NASA had many good times together. Carol was tasked with organizing everything. Our boss was Jim Gimble who Carol worked side by side with. Carol was such a beautiful spirit.

    I found this obit while trying to contact her. It was a shock to see how she left us so early. I have so many fond memories with her and our team at McDonnell Douglas.
