Carol was born in Boothbay Harbor on Jan. 12, 1946 and graduated from Boothbay Region High School in 1964. After graduating from the Chandler School for Women in Boston in 1966, she resided in Washington, D.C. where worked as an executive secretary for the CIA and met David Younts. David’s naval career took them to the Philippines, California, Oregon, and finally Washington State where they raised their family. Carol worked for Alaska Airlines as the manager of employee travel services from 1973 until her retirement in 1996. Carol’s position at Alaska Airlines enabled Carol and David to travel the world. After Carol retired from Alaska Airlines, she and David moved to Boothbay Harbor to live in Carol’s childhood home and Carol transitioned to the next chapter in her career managing the front desk at Brown’s Wharf Inn from 1996 until 2019.

Carol enjoyed sewing, crocheting, gardening, craft fairs, and loved her two dogs, Wally and Baxter. Carol was a truly giving and selfless person who wanted nothing more than to make the lives of those around her better. She donated her homemade blankets each year to St. Andrews Retirement Village and made face masks to hand out during the Covid pandemic. Carol also took minutes for the town selectman meetings for a period of time.  Carol opened her home to countless friends and family over the years and loved to show off Boothbay Harbor to visitors.
