Carol A. Wolfe, 76

Carol A. Wolfe, 76, of Independence, died Monday, December 24, 2018 at her home.

Carol was born May 8th, 1942 in Waumandee to Marvin and Josephine (Cisewski) Rothering. She married Marcus Woychik on June 18, 1958, together they had six children. She later married her childhood friend Robert Wolfe on February 11, 2000 and became a family with his two children. Bob sadly and unexpectedly passed away the following year.

Carol was an amazingly strong woman. She persevered through many tragedies and difficult times in her life somehow always managing to see the good and be the good

with her fun-loving nature and wonderful smile. Carol loved family. Her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren were kept very close to her heart. She loved cheering them on at their sports events and was a regular at MANY sporting events from T-ball to college football rarely missing a game!

In later years, she spent happy summers making new friends at the campsite. On any given day there could be a spur of the moment gathering with jokes, games, fun and of

course good food. Carol was also the proud owner of Carol’s Cakes & Crafts for many years showcasing her very talented baking and craft skills.
