Carol received her formal education attending school at Fairbury, where she graduated with the class of 1960.  She attended cosmetology school and then went to work in Kearney, Nebraska. She was united in marriage with Ronald L. Boyd on November 4, 1962, at Gladstone, Nebraska. This union was blessed with three sons, Mark, Kurt and Mitch.

After moving to Bladen, she was employed with the Grandview Manor at Campbell with admissions and social work.
