Click here to view services held for Carol on Friday, December 23, 2022 at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church.  

Carol Mabel Beyer passed away and joined her Lord in heaven at the age of 80 on December 19 after a long battle with Alzheimer’s. We celebrate Carol and her joyous reunion with her Savior in Heaven after a long, blessed life on earth.

During her 15 years of battling Alzheimer’s, Carol remained herself to the end. Carol, with the love and care of her husband, Sherwin, found happiness, hope, and laughter in every day. Sherwin dedicated himself to supporting Carol in her needs even as she entered Azura Memory Care Facility in 2019.

Carol was born on February 4, 1942, as the first daughter to Raymond and Caroline Marotz in Clintonville. Carol lived in Clintonville her entire young life as she graduated from Clintonville High and worked her first job as a secretary at Clintonville High. Carol married Sherwin Beyer on May 8, 1965, at St. Martin’s Lutheran Church in Clintonville, and they were married for 57 wonderful years. The couple was blessed with four beautiful and cherished children: Cathy, Scott, Daniel, and Gail.

Carol Beyer is survived by her husband, Sherwin, and children, Scott (Angela) Beyer, Daniel Beyer, and Gail (Aaron) Holdt. Carol was preceded in death and reunited with her eldest child, Cathy Beyer, in Heaven. Carol’s brothers, Marvin Marotz and Martin Marotz also preceded Carol in death. Carol is survived by her sisters Loretta (James) Tesch and Darlene (David) Roberts and sister-in-law Linda Marotz.

One of the many great joys of Carol’s family life was her role as a grandmother to her six treasured grandchildren: Scott and Angela’s children, Alexandra (Paul) Campen, Julia Beyer, and Grace Beyer, and Gail and Aaron’s children, Courtney, Kyle, and Makayla Holdt. Carol recently became a great-grandmother with the addition of Briley Campen to the family in October. As a mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, Carol loved tenderly, taught patiently, and laughed frequently.

Throughout her life, Carol had many interests and hobbies. Carol loved nature and spent many happy days working on her and Sherwin’s 50 acres, planting trees, tending to her garden, caring for the family’s many animals, and admiring wildflowers. Sherwin and Carol lived much of their life together in the home Carol designed for their family. In this home she welcomed and cared for anyone who needed a place to stay, and cooked them a warm, delicious meal as she was a welcoming hostess and wonderful cook. Carol was one of the hardest workers we knew. She took pride in helping run the family popcorn trucks, Ding-A-Ling Inc. So much of Carol’s focus was on her beloved family. Christmas, Easter and birthdays were among Carol’s favorite holidays when the whole family would gather to celebrate. Carol loved to travel with her family, and some of her favorite trips included multiple cross -country trips in their van and numerous visits overseas, her favorite city being Rottenburg. She was happiest when her children were happy, so they traveled to Disney multiple times as a family as well. Most importantly, Carol was an incredibly faithful Christian servant and role model to everyone she met. From singing loudly the hymns in church to volunteering for school and church events, Carol served her Lord humbly and gladly in her years on the earth. God truly welcomed home a good and faithful servant.

The family would like to thank the staff at Azura’s Memory Care Facility of Oak Creek for the patience, kindness, and family atmosphere they provided Carol with in her time there. They would also like to thank St. Croix Hospice Care for their consistency and care during this time for both Sherwin and Carol.

Carol’s memorial service was held on Friday, December 23, 2022, at 12 PM at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Muskego with Pastor David Kuehl officiating. Visitation prior to the service. For those wishing, memorials are appreciated for the St. Paul’s Lutheran School Tuition Assistance Fund.
