I first met Carol when she was a high school senior & I was a 1st grader riding the same bus. We 1st grade boys fought to have her sit by us, we were all in love with her!I knew her for many years living in Kerkhoven, I always thought she was the kindest, sweetest lady I knew. The world is a sadder place without her in it. Cally & I will greatly miss her kind & generous spirit!

Please accept my condolences. It is a very sad/emotional time when our love ones sleep in death. I hope you find comfort in the words found in John 5:28-29 and look forward to the day where we can hug our loved ones again. This is a promise from the God that does not lie and that promises to wipe all tears of pain Revelation 21:3-4. For more comforting thoughts, please visit www.jw.org.

Carol had the kindest most loving heart. She always treated everyone so good. She took in my kids when ever my daycare couldn’t. She was there for me when I needed to talk to someone who understood first hand what I had been through. She confided in me and it gave me strength to go on. I will forever be in her debt. RIP my beautiful friend.

I was so sad to see she had cancer , but am glad she no longer suffering. She was such an upbeat person and you felt you were her close friend right away. I first met her working at Snyder drug then when I worked at another daycare we were in the same building so ran into often ,always with a big hug. The world was a happier place with her here. I will miss her.

Mama Carol was the kindest person I've ever had the pleasure of knowing. It didn't matter to Carol if she just met you or had known you for years you would be greeted with a smile, kind words, a hug, and kiss on the cheek. I am so grateful for the time I spent with Carol and I believe she made the world a better place, one smile at a time.

Carol did they care for our two children when we lived in kerkhoven and I taught at KMS. She was always so kind, never without a smile on her face, and so much love in her heart for her children and each and every day care child. I have missed her so over the years. God's blessing to all of you as you mourn her loss. My prayers and blessings are with your family at this time.

I am deeply sorry to hear of Carol's passing. I can remember her from the times I spent working for KMP Telephone and when she and her family lived right beside the telephone office. I used to tease the daylights out of her older female children when I was working at KMP Telephone. That was along time ago...I think back in the era of 1967-1968-69. She later moved to a house just north of where my mother, Inez Stottler, lived on the northwest side of Kerkhoven. I remember her as being such a good friend to my mother. Again, I am deeply saddened that such a great person has left us. May she rest in peace.... Allen Stottler

I was Carol’s neighbor in Kerkoven, MN for three years. I was aged 12-15. She was like a second mom to me, she let me come over and play with baby Holly and when she did foster care I came and held and played with the babies! She was an inspiration, smiling, encouraging, loving, caring! I cherish the time I knew her and how much she was an encouragement for me. God is pleased to welcome her into His arms!

I don't think I have ever known anyone with a more beautiful smile and heart than Carol. I have great memories of many talks we had. I appreciate all her kind advice and friendship over the years. May she now live eternally with our Lord.

So saddened by this news. Carol was such a loving and caring person. She was my cheerleader advisor in High School and later my daycare mom for my daughter. Her heart was huge and she deeply cared about everyone she met. Carol, you will be missed . RIP beautiful lady.
