Carol was united in marriage to Stanley Mitchell on April 21, 1964 in Belleville and they were blessed with five children. Soon after, they relocated to Maeystown, Illinois to raise their family. In 1990, Carol relocated to the Sullivan area to be near her mother. Carol worked at various jobs through the years, but most notably enjoyed her time working at the Strain Store, where customers would often stop just to chat and check in for the day.
