Edward Raymond

After months of unexpected time of grace, and many “rallies” providing additional time with family and friends, it has pleased almighty God to call our dad home to life eternal, for which we can look to as well for a joy filled reunion. While he was very ill since this past November, we were blessed with many opportunities to share memories and see dad’s faith in action.
On August 21, 2015 at 10:45 PM God welcomed dad home, with family by his side. In fact, sons Mike and Ed, his beloved wife Bernie, his sister Darlene and brother-in-law Eugene were at his bedside as he passed. We were blessed to be in the middle of saying the Lord’s Prayer while holding dad as he took his last breath, which was an awesome blessing for those of us he leaves behind.

Dad is now at peace and resting from the struggles of life on earth. While we grieve his passing, there is great comfort in knowing that he has been given the crown of life through Jesus. That allows us to be thankful to our Lord for bringing him to faith and also for calling him home to life.

It was clear to all that dad married his soul mate, as mom and dad have been side by side and “two peas in a pod” for over 56 years. That love has resonated with so many family and friends and truly serves as an inspiration. May God continue to be with us through His word, and especially to my dear mom that she might find comfort and confidence in God’s promises.

Ed was the beloved husband of Bernie (nee Propp). Dear father of Edward G. (Tammy) Carow, (the late) Wendy (the late Brian) Baker and Michael (Terry) Carow. Grandfather of Jennifer (Matt) Frahm, Nicole (Matthew) Bown, Kristen (Ryan) Moldenhauer, Jessica Baker, Adam Carow, Darren (Amanda) Carow and Joshua Carow. Great grandfather of Hannah Frahm. Brother of Daniel (Frieda) Carow and Darlene (Eugene) Birdeau. Also survived by other relatives and friends.

Visitation Friday, August 28, from 3:00 PM until 5:00 PM at Christ Ev. Lutheran Church, S. 89 W. 22970 Maple Ave., Big Bend, followed by the Funeral Service at 5:00 PM. A short time of fellowship with the family will take place after the funeral service at the church.
The interment will be at Rural Home Cemetery.

If so desired, memorials to Christ Ev. Lutheran Church appreciated.
Thank you for your thoughts and prayers.

Like Barbara Janz Buchholtz, I was a member of the Bethlehem choir for many years. The group, including Eddie and Danny, were an important part of my years in Milwaukee. Love and prayers to Bernie and family.

Bernie – Just learned of Ed’s passing. Our sympathies to you and your family. We missed you and Ed at last year’s Naples German Fest. Ed was always a friendly and efficient helper in the Fellowship Hall and you were an important volunteer selling tickets. Of course we missed not seeing you two sitting in the front pew on Sundays at Our Savior this past year. We will be out of town as of tomorrow and, unfortunately, cannot attend the visitation to share our condolences in person.
