She married the love of her life, Jack Gibson, in 1962 and they settled in Brentwood. Together they raised two children, John and Kathryn.

In her Los Angeles years, she was committed to Maryvale, Orphanage Guild Juniors and Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA.) After she moved to Boise, she was an active supporter of The Learning Lab and Breaking Chains. She was a devoted member of Brentwood Presbyterian Church.
She and Jack were long time members of the Bel Air Bay Club and enjoyed paddle tennis, ski trips with Southern Skies, travel and time with many close friends.

Carole will always be remembered for her positive and loving spirit and her kindness in helping others. She will be deeply missed by those whose lives she touched.
