Carol went to be with her Lord on Tuesday, September 13, 2022. She was born to Emil and Amelia (Molly) Schock on May 16, 1944 in Garrison, North Dakota. She was preceded in death by her father, mother and beloved sister Marlene Koelzer. Carol graduated in 1962 from Garrison High School with honors. She worked a variety of jobs as waitress, teachers aid, bookkeeper for Boeing and volunteered for 12 years with R.S.V.P. getting free medicine for people. Her last but best job was as a florist at the Village Greenery for her good friend Becky.
She is survived by her husband and best friend Allan of 60 years; children Christi (Shawn) Bates and Amy Andrews; beloved grandchildren Christina and Grace Andrews and Mitch and Ty Bates. They were her greatest blessing, and named her "Cupcake" because she was easy, as every grandmother should be! Also her sister Florence Riesgraf of Crystal, Minn.
Carol also leaves her beloved nieces and nephews who were so close to her heart. Carol loved the sisters of her Heart and classmates of 1962, who after all these years remain close and love and support each other. Also her special church friend Logan for his hugs and smiles.
Carol's mother raised three girls with love and hope after Emil passed away at age 39. Molly always had a good work ethic and sense of humor. She fed so many people we teased her about feeding the fishes and loaves. She hopes somehow she carried on her tradition. It's always easy to make two gallons of soup instead of one to share!
