I am so sorry to Carol's family. She was such a good friend in school and we lived close to each other for a while. She was so much fun and so caring. .It was great seeing her at our high school reunions and catching up. I will miss seeing her and also connecting with her on Facebook. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

It is with great sadness that I send condolences to the Adkins family. In recent years I had the pleasure of spending some time with Carol at a reunion of Alpha Gamma Delta Sorority Sisters, Beta Zeta Chapter, Parsons College, Fairfield, IA. We met in Savanah, GA for a few days of fun and adventure. Carol was certainly a bright light, sharing her journey with cancer, sharing love of her family always with positivity and confidence in her love of life. I will never forget Carol. Lucia

Carol will be greatly missed by all who knew her. She could light up a room with her presence. Even though I only knew her for a short while she was a fighter. Her family was the center of her world especially her husband Bill. Now that the fight is over may you Rest In Peace. Until we meet again! 💞💞💞

I worked with Carol for many many years at McGraw Hill. She was compassionate about everything. We had a lot of laughs and heart to hearts though out the years. She neve met a stranger.

I was so fortunate to know Carol and remember her fondly. She always had a smile on her face and was sweet to everyone. I know she adored and was so proud of her family. I’m so glad you all were able to have the recent trip to Vegas, it looked like Carol was having a wonderful time. She was such a trooper all the way to the end. Please know my thoughts and prayers are with the entire family at this difficult time. Love to all of you! ❤️

The most positive person I have ever met. Carol was like a third grandmother to our children and her love and warmth blessed us all. We are all better for knowing her and having her in our lives.

Friends since 7th grade. Carol was a beautiful light in my life and so many others. I treasured seeing her each time she came to Fairfield. We sang together in Madrigal and marched together in band. I witnessed her wedding to her beloved partner, Bill. Rest In Peace, dear friend. Keep the angel choir in tune and give a hug to Evans, Hunt, and Genk. You were a blessing in my life. Love you. Until we meet again at Jesus’ feet.
