Director of Technology
Carol moved to Mount Vernon in 2017 after serving as the Technology Coordinator at Holy Cross Catholic School in Defiance, Ohio, for 24 years. As Technology Coordinator she taught classes to grades PreK - 8, as well as overseeing and maintaining all aspects of technology in the school.
After retiring and moving to Mount Vernon, Carol was eager to stay involved in her technology skills and to continue learning about technology. She volunteered at Gay Street by updating the website and assisting with technology needs. When Covid appeared, she volunteered to video tape sermons and make them available online for the church family and members of the community. The opportunity to become the Director of Technology at GSUMC was a blessing.
Carol and her husband, Fred, are the parents of three children, Kami (Eric) Diehl, Todd (Ann), and Reid (Jasmine). They have 11 grandchildren - Alex, Elizabeth, Rylan and Kyle live close by and Isabella, Abigail, Emma, Evie, Piper, Justice and Roxy live in California. Spending time with their family is their favorite thing to do!
Carol feels very blessed to be a part of the Gay Street UMC family. She has been welcomed with open arms and truly appreciates everyone's kindness and support!
