Obituary: Carol Burrow

OCEAN RIDGE — Avid skier, gardener and party host Carol Burrow of Ocean Ridge died April 3, surrounded by her husband and children. She was 70.

12438187858?profile=RESIZE_180x180Born Aug. 15, 1953, in Washington, D.C., she spent most of her life in South Florida and graduated from South Broward High School in 1971.

Mrs. Burrow was married to the love of her life, Bob, for 52 years and together they had two children, Jessica and Andy.

Carol and Bob started their own business where they worked together for 35 years before retiring in 2006.

Mrs. Burrow was a wonderful woman who loved her family and friends dearly. She was known as the “cool” parent and could host one hell of a party. She loved going water- and snow-skiing and was at every sporting event for her kids. She loved to dance and was a great cook. She loved being a member of the McCormick Mile Beach Club as well as the Ocean Ridge Garden Club.

The last 15 years of her life was a tough battle. She fought every day to be here for her family. Her strength and courage were unwavering and truly inspirational.

She is survived by her husband, Bob Burrow; son, Andrew Burrow; daughter, Jessica Helmer; brother, Lee Gantz; and grandchildren Jacob Burrow, Zachary Burrow and Grady Helmer.
