Our mom and Grandma, Carol Dutton, a former resident of Rhinelander, passed away on Saturday, the 21st of March, at Peabody Manor, in Appleton, after a year-long battle hoping to regain her health after developing an autoimmune disease.
Born in Chicago in December 1936, and married to her loving husband of 55 years, Carol is predeceased by Robert and survived by her three children, Kathy (Joe), Julie (Bill), and Chris (Judy); 10 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren, and very close friends across the northern Midwest. She adored watching her family grow into multiple generations.
Carol, a long-time supporter of the ASPCA, thoroughly enjoyed spending time with her cat JB, reading, and mostly spending time with her friends playing cards and making the most fun out of every moment
We want to thank the staff at Peabody Manor for caring for mom over this past year and for putting up with our family shenanigans when we were there visiting mom!
A celebration of life event for Carol will take place later in the spring or early summer in Rhinelander. You may leave your private condolences for the Dutton family at www.carlsonfh.com. The Carlson Funeral Home (715-369-1414) is serving Carolyn's family.
