Carla was truly a CHARACTER. She loved to tease! She will be remembered for her contributions to her nephew, Roy H. Ostenson. She sacrificed to make sure her nephew was able to go to college in Stevens Point. He has been forever grateful for her love and caring. She wanted him to have a better quality of life than she did, so she helped make it a reality.

She was a great lady and sincerely cared about the people in her life. Even when she was barely making it, she was always ready to help others.
