d. January 26, 2013

passed away at her home in Winslow on January 26, 2013.She leaves behind her three loving children: Teri Cole, and Scott Cole, both of Bainbridge Island, and Kim Haniger of Santa Clara, California; her three adoring grandchildren, Bailey, McKenna and Hunter Haniger of California; her loving brother, Burt Dragoo of Olympia, Washington; her dear and life-long friend, Mary Nelson of Wing Point; and a countless family of friends.Carole was born in Aberdeen, Washington on December 5, 1928. Named "Carole" by her mother to signify the month in which she was born, Carole's favorite time of year was Christmas, where she would celebrate her family with love, gifts, tradition and joy. The youngest of five children to the late Charles and Cordelia Dragoo of Aberdeen, Carole attended Weatherwax High School and married her beau of five years, Charles Stanley Cole, in the spring of 1951. She was devoted to her marriage for 61 years up until her husband's death last week.She and Charles settled on Bainbridge Island in 1960 where she would dedicate her life to raising her children, and supporting her husband in their construction business as well as his civic duties. Among her many favorite things to do, she loved to visit with family and friends, spend time in her garden, pick blackberries, bake pies, and welcome people into her home. She enjoyed traveling with her husband and friends in her retirement years, and visiting her son; and daughter and grandchildren in California. Her children and grandchildren were a profound sense of joy and treasure to her up until her last breath. Carole will be remembered for her undying generosity, her unfailing hospitality, and her kind and loving support as a mother and wife every moment of her life. Her daughter summed up her life by saying, "Mom woke up with a smile on her face every day. She embraced everyone as if they were family. She will be remembered for her wonderful spirit, her kindness, and her caring and gentle ways to everyone that had the chance to meet and know her, but we were the lucky ones to have her for our mother."Arrangements are being made through Cook Family Funeral Home. A celebration of life will be held in the spring.
