I was in H.S. at the time. Plus, my parents were Henry and Frances Helton who lived two doors down from your grandparents there in McRoberts.
I will ask around and see if I can find out where Carol is buried. The info would be on her death certificate. You probably weren't in Jenkins long enough but I remember the parents of Carol and Cathy and Jeff (?) who was about 7 at that time, later divorced. I remember Mrs. Mullins telling me that they always stopped at the same place to eat whenever they took Carol back and forth to Harlan for treatment (I assumed it was cancer but never really asked). Once after Carol had passed away, a waitress from that same eatery remembered Mrs. Mullins and Cathy and asked "how is your sick daughter?". Mrs. Mullins replied that Carol was now fine (which she was, in heaven with the Lord) but Mrs. Mullins said there was no point in making the waitress feel bad for asking. I have taken that lesson with me through life.
I'm glad Carol was so kind to you. High school was the best and worst of times. Carol was in my Home-Ec class. Lovely in every way. Did you remember Carol's family lived on that hill where the highschool was? At that time, we called it Brickyard Hill. We could go out that side door and walk past Mr. Stults working in his above ground basement on clocks and such down the brick road to the Jenkins Drug Store. There is a Joan Mullins listed on 44 Brick Street in my old Jenkins phone book. I don't remember Mrs. Mullins first name as in those days, we called everyone Mr. and Mrs.
I will let you know if I find out more.
