Carol S. Frederick was born in Ohio on August 13, 1944. Her father and mother, Thomas H. and Ethel Frederick, moved to Fort Lauderdale, Florida, when she was about five years old. Soon after, the family relocated to Beaumont, Texas. Carol graduated from Beaumont High School in 1962 and later married Nicholas P. Marino in Beaumont on July 8, 1967.
