Carol was born to An-

drew and Angeline Wentz

on Oct. 23, 1939. Carolyn

grew up on the farm with

her brothers and sisters.

She attended school, gra-

duating from Notre Dame

Academy in 1958 in Wil-

low City.

On May 31, 1961 Caro-

lyn married Clayton

Schreiber. Together, they

built a family of five chil-

dren and raised them on

Tuxedo Road in Minot.

The Catholic faith was im-

portant to her. She partici-pated in various church

activities and enjoyed

playing cards with

friends. In 2012, Carol

and Clayton moved to

Summerset. Initially, she

settled in and adapted

well. However, the last

several years of aging

were not easy on her. As

her mind and body failed,

she easily succumbed to

COVID-19. It is in the

honor of Carolyn’s

memory that family re-

quests that you wear a

mask and wash your

hands often – to protect

not only yourself but the

ones you love.

Carol was a small and

quiet woman. For many,

she could’ve been mistak-en as a mouse in the

corner; however, whatev-

er you could say about

her, she was a great

listener and strong in her

faith. She may have not

been a great conversation-alist, but she always en-

joyed being in your pres-


She is survived by: her

daughters, Colette (Arno)

Rudolph, Cheryl (Dan)

Haugen and Charlotte

Summerfeld; sons,

Charles (LaDonna)

Schreiber and Curtis

(Michelle) Schreiber; and

numerous grandchildren

and great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in

death by: her husband,

Clayton; parents, Andrew

and Angeline; and broth-

er, Pius.
