Carole May Dunham Scott

Carole May Dunham Scott, 66, of Basalt, died Sept. 17, 2005, in Glenwood Springs after a lengthy battle with rheumatoid arthritis.

Carole was born in South Bend, Ind., on Nov. 3, 1938, to Raymond and Margaret Dunham. She attended schools in South Bend.

Early in her career, Carole worked for Trans World Airlines as a ticket agent, and she enjoyed traveling the world while employed for the company.

Carole worked for the telephone company in Indiana and later transferred to Aspen to work in the Mountain Bell business office. In the early 1970s, she was one of the first women to work as a telephone installer, doing all that the job required, including climbing telephone poles. Carole transferred to Grand Junction to work as a manager for Mountain Bell. She retired in 1983.

Carole enjoyed traveling, camping, gardening and animals. She was an excellent bowler and was an avid fan of the Denver Broncos.

Carole is survived by her husband John Darol Wooley of Basalt; brother Ronald Dunham of South Bend, Ind.; and numerous nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents; and two sisters, Judy Dunham and Margaret Miller.

Cremation has already taken place. A private celebration of Carole’s life will be held with the scattering of the ashes in the mountains she loved.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests contributions to the Arthritis Foundation.
