Carol grew up in Happy, Texas along with her sisters: Kay, Dorothy, and Sue. She graduated from Palo Duro High School in 1967 and then went on to receive her bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education at West Texas A&M University. She worked as a kindergarten teacher until her retirement in 1977. After her retirement she had her own in-home daycare.
On June 22, 1973 Carol married her soulmate, Glen Burrow Miller at the First Baptist Church in Tulia, Texas. To this union two daughters were born: Brittany and Trevi.
Carol loved being Granny to her three grandsons: Asher, Beau, and Timmy. Her hobbies included reading and attending plays at the Fox Theater in St. Louis, Missouri. She enjoyed spending time outside and loved being around animals (especially horses, dogs and cats). We also can’t forget that she was an avid Oklahoma State fan.
