Carole married Gerald Meyer Aug. 24, 1963. They lived in Grand Forks, ND, where Gerald was stationed in the U.S. Air force. Carole and Gerald returned to Eau Claire to start their family. Carole loved singing in the church choir and serving as a Eucharistic Minister at St. Olaf’s Church. Carole was creative in all her talents, which included counted cross-stitch and card making. Carole enjoyed playing cards with her friends, lunch dates with shopping and creating memories with her children, grand children and great-grandson.
