Carol was born a native Coloradoan, but moved around throughout her young life. Her father was in the Navy, thus Carol got to attend school in exciting places, including Wyoming, Virginia, Missouri and Scotland. She attended College in Billings, Montana and graduated from Wayland Baptist in Texas finishing with majors in counseling, music, and accounting. She even had the exciting experience of volunteering at a Kibbutz in Israel.
Carol married Keith Wayne Anderson on September 14, 1985. They proceeded to have two sons Timothy Joel and Daniel Wade. Keith and Carol have lived in the Evergreen/Conifer area since 1985.
Throughout her life Carol had the joy to work as a waitress, bank teller, secretary at Conference Baptist Church, page at the local library, and, most importantly, a wife and a mother (and teacher, as she home-schooled her boys).
In her free time Carol always had several craft projects in the works, many of which were hand-crafted gifts. She was a voracious reader with a phenomenal library of her favorites. She enjoyed cooking, gardening, canning, and preserving flowers. She enjoyed spending time in the sun, at the beach and in the mountains.
Carol suffered with debilitating ALS for about 2.5 years. She was a strong woman who trusted Jesus and her husband to care for her needs.
Carol is survived by her husband Keith, two sons: Timothy (Leah) of Belgrade, MT and Daniel (Carolyne) of Arvada, CO; her mother Peggy Jean Burnap; her siblings Michael (Janice) Burnap, Patty Kraft, and Roy Burnap.
