On February 6, 1956 she married Louis Darga at St. Casimir Catholic Church. Carol was a member of St. Ignatius Catholic Church and its Altar Society.

Many people will remember Carol as the lady tending the Roger City Little League concession stand, a duty she faithfully attended to for many years.
