I worked for Carolyn about 43:years ago. She is a lovely, sweet person who is one of the first people who taught me what it means to use your gifts and the joy of helping people. Thank you Carolyn! You are loved and missed!

Dear Family,
Please accept my deepest condolences on Carolyn's passing. I was privileged to work for her at Schmidt's clothing for a number of years and considered her a dear friend as well. She was not only hard-working, but also a person of integrity, high moral character and kindness. A fond memory of her is when she would, on occasion, arrive at the store with her two beautiful Bernese mountain dogs. Carolyn would pop in for a short visit, leaving her beloved companions in her vehicle. It didn't take long and they assumed the role of driver and passenger--a sight to behold!
Heaven has gained a beautiful lady! Linda Cullen

I first met Carolyn as a small child at her clothing store. She was so kind and warm to all of us. Later in life, I reconnected with Carolyn when she was visiting a good friend of hers at an assisted living I managed. We connected and I introduced her to a friend of mine in Oshkosh. She was always a classy, kind and joyful person. I am sad to hear of her passing, but know her legacy continues here on earth with the lives she touched. David, Linda and family, please accept my deepest sympathy for the loss of your mother and grandmother.
