Carol was born September 5, 1935 in Shreveport, Louisiana to Elizabeth and John Smith. She is preceded in death by her parents John and Elizabeth; her husband Wiley Anderson of 62 years of marriage. She is survived by her Children; Lenda Dallas, Charles Anderson, and Laura Parker. Carol grew up in Galveston and graduated as valedictorian and president in 1954 from Ursuline Academy High School. She raised a family before college, and said her greatest joy was being a good wife and mother as well as having fun with grand as well as great grandchildren. She went on to receive a bachelor’s degree and master’s in education from the University of Houston. Carol taught for over 20 years at Pine Shadows Elementary School. She loved being in the classroom and interacting with the children. She taught English as a second language and frequently worked to better her students’ social lives outside of the school environment as well as in the classroom. Carol was a reading specialist and especially enjoyed establishing a mentor program at the school with older students helping younger children who were struggling with their reading. This soon led to an adult volunteer program for tutoring struggling readers at the campus. Carol enjoyed her family; keeping herself busy volunteering for duties as wife, mother or grandmother in support. Outside of her prescribed teaching duties she taught CCE for years to a wide range of professionals such as lawyers, doctors, teachers, as well as many priests. In her early years she was both a Girl Scout and Cub Scout leader where she found her fervor to many church organizations such as St. Vincent de Paul Society. She always had a vibrant energy for volunteerism, at school, work, or play; her selflessness will be greatly missed. The Anderson family will be present to receive friends Sunday, July 19, 2020 from 3:00 PM until 5:00 PM with a Vigil Service beginning at 4:00 PM at Dettling Funeral Home, 14094 Memorial Dr., Houston, TX 77079.
