Carole Ann Roberts (72) October 20, 1935-January 21, 2008
Carol was born in Santa Monica and lived her entire life enjoying the sun and sand at the beach. A graduate of UCLA in 1957 and member of Sigma Kappa, Carole worked as an interior designer and at McDonnell Douglas before a long career at TRW. Carole married her sweetheart, Harold Roberts on January 21, 1967. They were each other's best friend and shared 32 years together until Harold's death in 1999.
Daughter Chandra resides in Los Alamos, New Mexico with husband Jim Lake and their three children Cody (19), Colton (17) and Dylan (14). Carole's father Herman Friend lives in Morro Bay and Brother William Friend and wife Linda live in Maricopa.
Carole loved spending time with her grandchildren and often spoke with pride about their swimming medals. Her days started early with long walks on the strand or working out at the gym. She enjoyed playing bridge, reading, attending plays, and many other social activities. Carole was always planning her next trip and especially looked forward to her visits to see her grandchildren in New Mexico. She treasured all of her special Friends and felt very fortunate to be surrounded by the many people who loved and cared for her.
