She was born on May 18,1952 to Antonio and Ramona Martinez in Lockhart, TX.
Carol was a longtime native of Lockhart until July 2020 when she went to live with her sister Sylvia Gutierrez, where you’d find both of them enjoying a nice cup of coffee a panecito of some kind and a little chisme.
Carol also enjoyed sitting in her recliner doing her crossword puzzles and watching the Hallmark, Lifetime and the home makeover channels, even if they were reruns she’d enjoy their as if it was the first time watching them. You’d also catch her watching football, her favorite teams the Dallas Cowboys and the Texas Longhorns.
Most of all Carol loved spending time with family especially her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.
