In 1990, she became a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution. Bill and Carolyn built their dream retirement home on Lake Conroe in 1999. She is a cancer survivor, a Starbucks connoisseur, and a bit of a philanthropist. She was an avid lover of dogs, especially poodles, as she was never without one at her side.
