Carol E. SALMON Obituary
Age 85 of Shoreview Passed away Aug. 23, 2014 Comforted in her final days by the love and company of her family and many friends. Preceded in death by husband, William E. and sons-in-law, Kenneth Muth and Jeffery Chapman. Carol is survived by her children, Gary (Katherine Killebrew), Denis (Kristine), Steven, Carol-Linnea Salmon and Karen (Tony) Schreck; 10 grandchildren; 3 great-grandchildren; brother-in-law, Ernest Salmon; nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends. Carol was born in 1928 on a farm near Deer River, Minnesota. The youngest of 14 children, she moved to St. Paul after high school graduation. There she met her husband Bill, a carpenter, who built the house in Shoreview where they raised their five children, and where Carol lived for over 60 years. Carol's exceptionally quick wit and ready laugh made her unforgettable to her many friends and colleagues during her years as a secretary at Hamline University and the U. of M., and as a clown named Notso in the Powder Puff Clown Club. A charter member of Incarnation Lutheran Church in Shoreview, she was an active volunteer for decades, teaching confirmation classes and working with youth groups. Carol will be remembered for her exuberant personality and joyful spirit. Visitation 4-8 PM Wednesday (Aug. 27th) at HOLCOMB-HENRY-BOOM-PURCELL FUNERAL HOME, 515 Hwy 96 W., at Mackubin, Shoreview.
