Carol Eileen (Pfeiffer) Balboa was born in Fredericksburg, Texas. She lived on a family farm in Kendall County with her parents and her three siblings: Karen, Jay, and Alan. She attended public school in Boerne for twelve years.
Her college years were spent at Southwest Texas State University in San Marcos where she studied journalism and photography.
Her first job out of college was for a newspaper in Karnes City. She became editor of the Canyon Lake Sun and then the Cameron Chronicle. She also wrote articles for the Comfort News. Following that she was editor at the Lockhart Citizen. She started her own graphics design business called Pfeiffer Communications while she was in Lockhart. Her last newspaper job was for the Hays Free Press in Kyle selling advertising. It was there that she met the love of her life, Daniel Balboa. She worked by his side in their septic system design business based in Austin and they were blessed with an amazing son, Logan Balboa.
She touched the lives of many neighbors, co-workers, clients, customers, parents, and her son’s classmates. She made friendships easily. We are all better for knowing her.
Carol is preceded in death by her father, Elmer Pfeiffer; and her brother, Alan.
