Children & Grandchildren


The proud mother of two unbelievably brilliant, talented, loving, and beautiful children. Carol is the lovely wife of their son-in-Gospel Matthew Laux. Matt and Carol have two daughters named Mikayla Elaine and Kelly. Their son William is a financial advisor for Northwestern Mutual Life. William is married to their daughter-in-Gospel Julie, who is a paralegal. Bill and Julie have a daughter named Jenna Anne and a son named Jacob.    

We were planned by God not by man.  I was not a dropped stitch, I was a tightly knot miracle.
