On July 4, 1963, she married Robert L. Tipton. Together they raised daughter Wendy and son Robert.
In her spare time, Carol loved gardening, sewing, and shopping. On many days, you could find her out in her garden, elbow-deep in dirt and planting the most colorful roses. But what she loved most in life was to be surrounded by her family and friends.
Carol is preceded in death by father Carl and mother Doris. She is survived by her loving husband of 59 years Robert, daughter Wendy Hedgpeth and husband Keith, son Robert C. Tipton and wife Crystal, grandchildren Trey Tesno and wife Lisa, Kate, Kristina, and Josh Tipton, great-grandchildren Isaiah and William Tesno, sisters Suzanne Meyer and Marianne Boyce, brother William, and several nieces and nephews.
The service to celebrate Carol’s life will be held on Sunday, August 7, 2022, at Forest Park Funeral Home, 18000 I-45 South, The Woodlands, Texas 77384 at 2:00pm.
