Age 77, passed away peacefully on June 22, 2019.
Born in Elk River, MN on December 23, 1941, Carol lived most of her life in ‘Good Ol’’ Nordeast Minneapolis. She will be remembered as a devoted mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt and friend. She was a hard-working and dedicated single parent, often holding two or more jobs to support her family. Her zest for life, sense of humor and stunning blue eyes could fill a room.

The unbreakable bond and love between her and her sisters will always be revered.
