Carol A. Schuh, 74, Norwich, formerly of Lakota, passed away peacefully at her home on Thursday, Oct. 11, 2012.
Carol was born Aug. 11, 1938, to Eugene and Bernadette (Duchesneau) Carlson. She was raised and educated in Lakota, graduating from Lakota High School in 1956.
On Sept. 22, 1958, Carol married Richard Schuh. To this blessed union four children were born. Growing up one of six children herself, Carol knew how important family was, and instilled this into her children. The family resided in Minnesota until they relocated to Norwich in September 1978. Carol worked as a waitress and a bartender for many years, working at such places as Cedar Inn, Fortune Cookie, as well as Schatz Crossroads Truck Stop. Carol and Richard also owned Jackies Cafe as well as Big 2.
Richard passed away in September 1984, and Carol continued to reside in the family home in Norwich.
Carol enjoyed painting and drawing. This was evident by the numerous pieces of artwork that hung on the walls of the family home. In her spare time, Carol enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren, working on crossword puzzles, as well as taking care of her many animals, most of which were strays that just knew a loving home when they saw one. Carol had a wonderful sense of humor and could make just about anyone laugh.
Left to mourn her passing are: sisters, Trudy (Quentin) Weigel, of Minot, Barbara (Elvin) Johnson, of Lakota, brother, Robert Carlson, of Fargo; daughter, Cherly Amundson, of Fort Collins, Colo., and son, John Schuh, of Norwich; nine grandchildren, two great-grandchildren, many nieces, nephews and countless friends.
Carol will be greatly missed by all whose lives had been touched by hers.
Preceding Carol in death were: her parents; her loving husband, Richard; two brothers, John and Richard; son, Russell Schuh; daughter, Richelle Pruitt; and granddaughter, Dail Amundson.
A Liturgy of the Word Service is scheduled for: Wednesday, Oct. 17, 2012, at 1 p.m. at Thomas Family Funeral Home Chapel, Minot.
Interment: Will be in Norwich Lutheran Cemetery, Norwich.
