She graduated in 1958 from Butler High School, Huntsville, Ala. Carol went on to work for Redstone Arsenal where she met David Edward Bobo. The two were married April 27, 1963, and they enjoyed over 55 happy and beautiful years together. She continued to work until her retirement in 1996 which gave her the time to spend with her grandchildren. Her hobbies included sewing and quilting with Kathy. She enjoyed all types of travel with family and has been to nearly all 50 states. Her travels also included RV camping with Butch and Cathie. Carol spent a tremendous amount of time with her enormous collection of family photos which were primarily of the grand babies. Carol never failed to include anyone into her family and will be terribly missed by everyone she loved. Graveside services were conducted on Tuesday afternoon in Riverview Memorial Gardens with Mike Johnson officiating. Please consider memorial donations to Alzheimer’s Association in place of flowers. Gallant-Riverview Funeral Home in charge of arrangements.
