Carol was born on August 12, 1949 in Hudson, the daughter of Lynos and Esther “Ida” (Porter) Simpson. She was raised in Hudson and graduated Hudson High School in 1967.

Carol was united with the love of her life David Boles on June 26, 1970. They met during the 1965 floods in Prescott, WI. when Dave hit her with a shovel while filling sandbags.

Dave and Carol were blessed with many nieces and nephews who they would vacation with to places like the Drum Corps International, City Band Concerts, Paul Bunyan Logging Camp, Lambeau Field and others. They were not afraid of a good road trip. Carol is a favorite Aunt to many generations of nieces and nephews and she always enjoyed having them around. Together the two also spent many years with their “boys” who they cared for and chaperoned to the Special Olympics.

She is survived by sister Mary Ann Reed, brother Richard Simpson, sister-in-law Yvonne Boles, nieces and nephews; Marcel (Patty) Hoaglan, Misty (Tom) Fredrick, Melody (Roger) Anderson, Douglas (Celeste) Boles III, Robert Boles, Lisa (Tony) Rambo, Scott (Becky) Simpson, Tracy (Richie) Prescott, and many great nieces and great nephews.

Carol was preceded in death by her husband David, her parents Lynos and Ida, brother Jerry Simpson, brother-in-law Doug Boles, sister in-in-law Deborah Boles, and niece Kelly Schmidt,
