Carole was born on September 20, 1935 in Stafford, Kansas. She attended the University of Kansas in Lawrence where she earned a teaching degree. After graduation, she taught school in Carlsbad, New Mexico. Carole married Conrad Smith on August 30, 1958.

She and Conrad volunteered their time at Liberty Hospital TreeHouse. Carole attended the Liberty Christian Church, First Presbyterian Church, and Liberty United Methodist.

Carole loved to spend her free time reading, growing vegetables in her garden and perennial flowers in the yard. Her greatest joy was the gathering of family, where she created lasting family traditions and memories. She made everything special.
