She was very outgoing and personable with past memberships in the IAC International Aerobatic Club, Garden Club in Grove Oklahoma and the Frisco Senior Center. Her hobbies included reading, crossword puzzles, gardening, cooking, sewing, community service work and collecting anything to do with monkeys. She was a long-time resident of Carrollton Texas but loved all her time spent on Monkey Island, OK when she lived there from 1995 to 2002. She also enjoyed good food, baking and socializing with her friends. She had a wonderful smile that could light up the room and warm your heart. She will be greatly missed by her friends and family. Carole will be laid to rest next to her beloved husband, Keith Alexander Allan. Graveside service at Sparkman Hillcrest on her birthday December 9, 2012 at 2:30 pm. One of Carole's greatest joys was having her children together with her to celebrate her birthday.
