Carol was an active member of Only Believe Church in Botkins, serving for nearly 40 years in numerous areas of ministry. She also loved gardening, baking bread, and sewing. She had been a seamstress at the former Zofkie’s Bridal and also did custom sewing and alterations from her home. It was her enjoyment of sewing that inspired her to open her own business, “Carol’s Coats of Many Colors,” where she designed, created and offered these at many events in the area. Carol lived her faith, offering encouragement from personal experiences through her Christ inspired products of “His Sand” based on the Scripture from Psalm 139:17-18. Carol was always excited to share her faith and love of Christ with others.
