To the family of Carol Winter,
Even though I never met Carol’s family, I feel very fortunate to have met her at Mercy Hospital in the late 70’s, early 80’s. I also was a member of the “Mercy North” group Nancy Fratzkee mentioned.
I will never forget her warm personality as she passed the receptionist desk and said hello or stopped to chat awhile at Mercy. She was always so pleasant and willing to help if someone needed a projector or video equipment from the library.
Sending my sincere condolences to her family. May God ease your pain in her passing.
Dear Aaron, Kirsten, and Tony,
I send my condolences for the loss of your mother. May God and memories comfort you.
I was a student of your mother, Miss Hopper Carol Winter), when she taught in Webster City, Iowa. I even attended her wedding. Your mother sent a gift when our first daughter was born 1964. Then we lost contact.
I was able to reconnect with your mother a few years ago when I called Kirsten. Your mother and I had great phone conversations.
Your mother certainly accomplished many things.
On behalf of Bur Oak Land Trust, I would like to extend our sympathies to Carol's family.
Tony, Kirsten and Aaron, I was so sad when I learned of your mom’s death. She was a good long-time friend. I have so many memories. Don’t even know which ones to tell you about! You may know most, since she kept in close touch with you. Craig & I saw her last summer (2022) at Legacy. She seemed very happy there. We all know we will get to that point in our lives where we need to live somewhere other than by ourselves! I was happy she made that decision on her own!!
Yesterday, I tried to remember how we became friends. I answered the Mercy Library phone for her whenever she was out and about. Our “Mercy North” group had lots of luncheons and FUN! Friendships just evolved from there. After moving to Storm Lake, she came many times to visit and we would to go to Sioux City to see Dorothy!
It’s hard to say goodbye to the one who loved you first, she will be with you always. Please know that I will miss her too.
On behalf of the Iowa City Public Library, I want to offer condolences on the loss of Carol, who served on the ICPL Board of Trustees, helping to ensure the future of our Library. We are indebted to Carol for her service and send her family and friends our deepest sympathies.
You all have my very deepest sympathy. I didn't know Carol personally but I worked with her son Aaron a long time ago. We both worked at a gas station together. I wanted to reach out to him and the rest of the family and say my condolences.
So sorry for your loss. I got to know your Mom at New Song Episcopal Church. We both lived in the Wellington condos and she shared a story about discovering an injured owl and how she captured it and helped get it rehabilitated. She said it was returned to the area after it recovered.
Your Mom was a lovely lady, always looked out for others. So happy I got to know her.
My condolences to Carol's children. You were the light of her life. I knew Carol.from Mercy days. Carol had many talents and loved learning. Peace to you as you celebrate Carol's loving legacy.
