Carol grew up in Priest River, Idaho where she met her husband of 66 years, Larry Armstrong. They were married in 1942, just before Larry entered the Army to serve in WW2. After WW2, Carol and Larry lived in South San Francisco. In 1959 they moved to Belmont and lived there until their passing. They raised two sons in Belmont, Chris and Bruce.
