Carol Louise Mulford, mother of Ann Kent and grandmother of Thomas and Caroline Kent of Yellow Springs, passed away peacefully in the presence of family in Rochester, N. Y., on May 24. She was 91.
Carol graduated from Syracuse University, was employed as a buyer, married and raised children Ann, Peter, Sharon and John.
Carol’s life was one of significant community service. She was an ordained elder and trustee at Third Presbyterian Church, a member of the boards of education for the BOCES and Brighton school districts and an active member and past president of the Women’s Council of Rochester Institute of Technology. Her life reflected a strong theme of giving back to the community she lived in and her volunteer and leadership skills were respected by many. She was a woman of grace, whose wisdom and desire to serve will live on in the memories of all who knew her.
She was preceded in death by her husband of 59 years, Frederick S. Mulford. She leaves behind four children, nine grandchildren and three great grandchildren who are and will be very proud of her fine legacy.
