Carol grew up in Tacoma and graduated from Lincoln High School in Tacoma 1957. Carol married Donald C. Woods April 20, 1958.

Carol was a wonderful mother and home maker and worked outside the home as well. Carol had many jobs over the years and spent over 20 years working for Bates Technical College until she retired in 2001.
Carol’s favorite things to do included spending time with her family, camping in their RV with children and grandchildren, and with friends on the Skagit River and in Arizona. There were also some special family times spent on Whidbey Island. The family gathered there annually for long summer weekends where they played lots of games including chicken foot and hearts. In her later years Carol enjoyed hosting and attending luncheons with her friends as well as playing Bunco and Mahjong.
Carol was preceded in death by Donald Woods, her husband of 57 years, and is survived by her brother Jim Robinson, daughters Cathy Caputo (Vince), Debbie Williams (Robin), grandchildren Christine Shimanek (James), Shane Masko (Heather), Noah Williams, Taylor Williams, great grandchildren Ethan and Landon Shimanek, and Drew and Violet Masko.
