Carol was preceded in death by her parents; her husband: David; her children: Gary & Bob Puetz; siblings: Donald Stemper, Lorelie (Butch) Nennig; siblings-in-law: Jeanold Puetz, David Ramirez & Joyce (Joe) Depies; and a nephew: Joe Puetz 

Mass of Christian Burial will be at 12:30 pm on Friday, July 12, 2024 at St. Mary Catholic Church, Marytown.  Burial will be in the St. Charles Catholic Cemetery in Charlesburg.  A time of visitation will be held at the church from 10:00 am until 12:15 pm on Friday, July 12, 2024.
