Everyone Carol touched remembers her smile and cheerful nature.
After college and before starting a family, Carol thrived on being a kindergarten teacher.

Carol and her family had vast life experiences as they lived in: Woodward, IA; St Louis, MO; West Des Moines, IA; Wilson, NC; Brentwood TN; and Grand Haven, MI.
Carol always devoted her time and love to her children.
She was an active school volunteer and thereby assured her children gained the most from their school experiences.
Along with her passion for family, love of God was the focus of Carol’s life.
She always maintained a positive attitude and instilled Christian virtues in her family.
Carol is survived by her husband, Armand Perrier III of Grand Haven; three children: Angela (Brian) Woline of Clive; Courtney Perrier of Walker, Michigan; and Armand IV (AJ) of Grand Haven (Home); and her mother-in-law, June Perrier of Spring Lake, Michigan.
Carol is also survived by two brothers: Paul (Nancy) Jacobsen and family of Boone, and Jon (Norma) Jacobsen and family of Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
Carol was preceded in death by her parents, Egon and Margaret Ann Jacobsen formerly of Boone, and her father-in-law, Armand Perrier Jr., formerly of Madrid.
