She was born Dec. 3, 1938, in Shirkieville, to Nick Vinardi and Susie Sekerak Vinardi.

Carole was a member of the St.-Mary-of-the-Woods Village Catholic Church, the Vigo County Farm Bureau Association, where she served on the board for 25 years, the West Vigo – New Goshen Lions Club, and she had been a 4-H leader for many years for the kids involved in 4-H in Fayette Township and their club the “Fayette Farmalls”. She enjoyed making ceramics, which she did for many years, and she always looked forward to the Covered Bridge Festival every year, where she had a booth for her ceramics at both Bridgeton and Mansfield.
