Carlene was married to Douglas (Doug) King for seventeen years until he passed in 2000. Doug and Carlene started D&C Industrial Supply where they and their dog Tootsie enjoyed giving great service to their customers who were also their friends.
In 2004 Carlene married Robert (Bob) Voight and they very much enjoyed married life. Carlene was a very loving person who always made each person she came in contact with feel important.
