I worked with Carol for over 12 years in the Public Health Department. She touched many lives over the years and thoroughly enjoyed home visits with families and their newborn. I have fond memories of baking Christmas cookies with her, Teresa, and her mother when my daughters were little girls. She will be missed by many as a true genuine loving and caring individual. Rest in peace, my friend.
I first met Carol and Teresa at a function at Sts. Mary and Hyacinth church awhile ago. Teresa reminded me of St Teresa of Liseux, quiet and contemplative. Carol was the talkative one, like St Teresa of Avila, an active contemplative. I wish I could have gotten to know them both better. I thought of Carol a couple of weeks ago. What a loss for the community of Antigo and also for the church. I am praying for the repose of Carol’s soul, however do not feel she needs prayers. I am praying for you, her dear family, for you have had a big loss, may The Blessed Mother comfort you. Blessings.
So sad to hear of Carol's death. She will be fondly remembered for giving spirit and willingness to volunteer. Had enjoyable times working with her on funeral dinners and Rosary Society activities. She will be missed by many. Kathy Boksa
Carol was a woman on a mission and she followed the path that has taken her to her true home. I will always remember her smile and willingness to donate her time and talents to Living Waters International fundraisers as well as to the community at large. Rest in peace dearest Carol.
Carol and I square danced together the last few years. She always had such an enthusiasm for life and loved to dance and talk with the other people. She will be missed. Barb
Carol was such a nice but quiet lady. I knew her from the Antigo Garden Club and the Community Garden. I will miss our chats about plants.
Carol will be remembered for her compassionate care for the community while working for the Langlade County Health Department. I enjoyed working with Carol throughout our many years together at the Health Department, she was always volunteering to help with clinics and health fairs. She loved gardening at home and at the Community Garden. She liked to travel with her sister Theresa to see the many waterfalls and churches around the state. Carol will be missed by her family and friends and her church family.
Carol was a very active member of Ss. Mary and Hyacinth’s Rosary Society. She loved and lived her faith. You would find her helping, learning by attending Diocesan events and praying. A very charitable person. My deepest sympathy and prayers to the family.
I worked with Carol at the health department until she retired. Carol was fun to be around and loved working with the children. She will be greatly missed.
I attended White Lake High School with Carol. She was always thoughtful and kind. Sending my best wishes and prayers to her family.
