Carol was the daughter of Greek immigrants who came to the United States from the beautiful island of Skyros, Greece, in 1929. She was born in 1938 and grew up in Roselle, N.J., where she met and married Frederick J. Siegel.
They moved to Clayton in 1971 and lived there for more than 50 years until their passing. The Siegels were one of the very first, if not the first, families to move into the Dana Hills neighborhood in Clayton. Their house was the third one built in the neighborhood.
During their time in Clayton, Carol and Fred owned and operated Mountaire Garden Supply, a full-service landscape and garden center on Clayton Road for 15 years. Carol also worked for 27 years as a legal secretary until she retired in 2008 from Archer Norris law firm in Walnut Creek.
Carol was a beautiful, bright, kind, fun-loving and strong person who had many dear friends and a family whom she cherished and who loved her dearly.
She is survived by her two daughters, Virginia and Mary Ellen; son Fred; grandchildren John, Lucas, Alex and Claire; and great-grandchildren Riley and James.
Carol’s funeral service and celebration of life will be held at 2 p.m. Aug. 20 at Holy Cross Lutheran Church, 1092 Alberta Way, Concord. Reception will follow.
