Carol is survived by her loving husband, Cecil Quinlan; daughters, Karen Serrette of Kissimmee, FL and Kim Hutchinson and husband Marc of Orlando, FL.

Her parents and her brother Carlos White precede her in death.
Carol and her husband Cecil emigrated from Panama to New York City and retired to Kissimmee in 1997. Carol was a retired medical records clerk in a dental office and an active parishioner at Holy Redeemer Catholic Church. Carol loved spending time with her family, spoiling her granddaughters and especially enjoyed vacationing together. Christmas was her favorite time of the year. She enjoyed picking a live Christmas tree, getting it home and decorating the tree and the entire house. It gave her great joy to watch her grandchildren open numerous gifts on Christmas day and attend midnight mass on Christmas Eve. She would set aside a day just to bake Christmas cakes for family and friends.
