Preceding Carol in death are her parents; two brothers, Donald Weck and Bill Weck; six sisters, Maxine, Marjorie, Ethel, Pauline, Betty, and an infant sister; as well as her mother-in-law, Doris Heesen of Beaver Dam.

Carols’ family has asked that you spend time with your children, make blue noodles with your grandchildren, dance around the house and the yard with your feather boa, and always tell those close to you that you love them every day. These are the things that Carol would wish for you.

Family services will be held on Monday, July 30, 2018, at Redlin Funeral Home, 401 Madison Ave. in Baraboo. Burial will be held at St. Bartholomew Cemetery in Dodge County.

The family requests on behalf of Carol’s wishes that in lieu of flowers an expression of love and support be made to the family to be used at St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital in her name.
