Carol O'Connell's recovery

Carol O'Connell lived in Rochester, New York, attended West High School until she was 17 , then moved to California with her family. 
     Carol left all her friends she had, some since the age of 5. She latermarried Bob O'Connell, who passed away in 2016. Bob also graduated from West High.

      Carol and Bob had two children Tracey and Colin, they later divorced  but all stayed close while they were all living in Rochester again.....Eventually Carol and the kids moved back to California to be closer to Carol's family.......
      Carol has stayed in touch with many friends from here, came to visit and attended WHS 50 th reunion in 2015.   Carol came up with the idea of having a turning 70 party Oct 7 this year...Carol was so excited, made Airline reservations and I was helping her contact friends and start invites.
     The end of August Carol had a brain aneurysm, had surgery and was recovering, slowly with lots of bumps along the way...Carol was moved to a rehab facility a while ago, and then an infection occurred and back to the hospital, where she still remains......
     I am in hopes of getting some help financially to her, she was still working and could certainly use some help. Nothing is too small. 
                                        Thank you, Bonnie Spohn-Gottorff
