She was united in marriage to Eugene R. Wimmer in 1950. The couple had four children and resided most of their married life in Creston, where she owned and operated an abstract and title business. The couple divorced in 1989.

Carole later married Ralph Cooper in 1999 and he preceded her in death soon thereafter.

Carole had many hobbies: quilting, ceramics, camping and raising dogs and horses. She served as president of her local Red Hat Society. She loved all kinds of dancing, playing cards, games and getting dressed up.

She is survived by her children: Margaret (John) Johnson of Cedar Rapids, Robert (Barbara) Wimmer of Welton, Scott (Nancy) Wimmer of Council Bluffs and Nancy Knox of Creston; 12 grandchildren, 21 great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandchild.
