Carol Marie (Matthees) Schroeder, born November 29, 1937 in Owatonna, Minnesota, passed into our Lord's heavenly hands on January 28, 2019 while RVing in Sierra Vista, Arizona.

Carol married Earl C. Schroeder on April 8, 1961, at Redeemer Lutheran Church in Willmar Minnesota, where she worked as a telephone operator. She met Earl in Willmar, where he was stationed with the U.S. Air Force.

Carol and Earl have two sons, Mark of Turner, Oregon; and Scott who lives in Beaverton with his wife, Lisa; and two grandsons, Sam and Grant.

Carol and Earl moved to Sisters 11 years ago, coming from Salem where they lived for 40 years.

Carol retired after 22 years as a teaching assistant at Swegle Elementary School in Salem. She was a member of PEO.

The Lord, in his Almighty wisdom, sent down an angel and quietly took Carol's soul to her heavenly home, where we are assured that she will rest in peace.

Funeral services will be held on February 9 at Shepherd Of The Hills Lutheran Church, 386 N. Fir St., Sisters, starting at 2 p.m.
