Obituary

Carol, of Arvada, Colorado assumed her rightful place in Heaven on September 21, 2017. Born on September 10 in Graettinger, Iowa, Carol was the third of five children born to Dan and Rita Higgins. Her early years were spent in Iowa and Nebraska before moving to Denver in 1955. She married the love of her life, Rich, on November 21, 1959. Carol was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, and football fan who faithfully followed the Broncos and CU Buffs. An ardent music lover, she equally enjoyed the symphony or rocking out to Elvis. Carol was at her best when surrounded by family and friends and was loved by many.
