Carole Rae Boo-Harrington, 70, of West Des Moines, passed away on Friday, February 5, 2021, at Iowa Methodist Hospital in Des Moines.

Carole was born February 13, 1950, in Des Moines, IA, daughter of Raymond and Phyllis (Walter) Boo. She attended school in Des Moines and graduated from North High School in 1968. Carole made her home in Des Moines where she raised her daughter Laurie and worked as the Office Manager/Executive Assistant for Wash Pointe Auto/Keck Energy.

Carole has always been a bright spot for anyone she meets that day. Carole did not have an insincere bone in her body and would do anything she could to help anyone. Her ability to empathize was a sincere gift, and drew people closer to her.

When Mike first met Carole he was thunderstruck by her poise as a lady and her incredible beauty!

Carole was married to Michael Harrington on July 4, 1996, in Hot Springs, Arkansas. They met for the first time in the fall of 1992. They made their home in the Des Moines area and currently were residing in West Des Moines.

Carole has a creative mind that flowed over to her paper crafting of Christmas and Birthday Cards which she loved to share with others. Carole was one to always think of others before herself.

She was preceded in death by her father.

Carole is survived by her husband Mike, a daughter Laurie Paasch and her mother Phyllis Boo both of Windsor Heights, two sisters, Nancy (Wayne) Kramer of Independence, IA, and Patricia (Russ) Romey of South Bend, IN.

Services are being planned for a later date.
