She grew up in various cities in the mid-west but would call Green Bay, Wisconsin her hometown. Carol graduated from Lawrence University in Appleton, Wisconsin and received a Masters degree in Computer Science from Purdue University. She later received a degree in Business from UNCGreensboro and worked as a CPA for Tuggle-Duggins Law Firm for more than twenty-five years. Carol's life was dedicated to her husband, her children and especially her grandchildren. The grandkids loved Grammy because she could fix what was broken, she could pull a feast from her purse, she could sew a princess gown from rags, and she could turn tears into smiles. Carol loved traveling whether to the Outer Banks or China, rooting for her many favorite sports teams, and cooking for family and friends. She will be forever remembered for her unconditional love and devotion. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her brother Craig Johnson. She is survived by her husband of 48 years, Jansen Lasley; daughter Beth Orvin (Heath); son Brian Lasley (Michelle); grandchildren Chase Orvin, Bowen Lasley, Parker Lasley and Ella Orvin; sister Christine Wilson; and many nieces, nephews, family members and friends whom she loved.
