She received her education from Holdrege Public Schools, in Holdrege, Nebraska, graduating with the class of 1958.

On March 9, 1958, she was united in marriage to Dale Roger Asche at the First Presbyterian Church in Holdrege, and to this union, four children were born: Roger, Sheila, Wanda, and Mark. The family made their home on a farm east of Huntley. Carol was employed as the office manager at the Commercial State Bank in Republican City until her retirement.
