Carol’s employment over the years had one theme, emulating Jesus in all she did. She started at Northwestern Bookstore as a clerk and ended her career in Campus Ministry at the University of St Thomas. Her passion for Spiritual direction showed through her work at the Christos Center in Lino Lakes, MN.


A special heartfelt thanks to Ecumen Hospice and the Seasons at Maplewood who cared for and surrounded Carol during her time there. They gave our Mother the love, attention and dignity she needed.


A Celebration of Life will be held on Carol’s birthday, February 3, 2022 at St. Timothy Lutheran Church, 1465 N Victoria St., St Paul. Look for announcement on details of this service in January 2022. Private interment at Roselawn Cemetery.
