Carol was a very devout Christian woman who worked tirelessly serving her Lord, her family, and others. She was a dedicated secretary and friend to Pastor John Schaadt and his wife, Gladys. Her services as secretary, choir director, organist, and dear friend were a blessing to Concordia Lutheran Church. May God bless all who were touched by her love, kindness, and ministry.

She was a long time loving friend and my maid of honor. I will miss her greatly! My three children considered her an aunt and was always there for our special milestones.

Carol was much more than our churchs secretary, organist, and choir director. Her faith was inspirational and she was our friend. We will miss her. Our condolences and prayers are with her family.

I was greatly blessed to be able to work with Carol and sing under her choir direction during my vicarage at Concordia. She loved her Savior and was devoted to serving the One who died to redeem her. I know she will be greatly missed. I pray for her dear family and friends during this time of sorrow. And I long for that Day, when all saints bought by Jesus blood shall rise, so that I may see her again, and we may sing our Easter Hallelujahs with all the heavenly host unto eternity.
