Carol Lorraine Kesteloot was born in Gales Township, rural Milroy, Minnesota, to Joseph and Barbara (Hammerschmidt) Zwach on Christmas, December 25, 1921. She was baptized and received first communion at the St. Michael’s Catholic Church in Milroy. She attended school in Milroy and graduated with the Class of 1940 from the Milroy High School.

Carol was united in marriage on September 11, 1945 to Victor Kesteloot at St. Michael’s Catholic Church in Milroy. The couple farmed in the Marshall area until moving into town in 1981 to enjoy their retirement. They were blessed with five children, Jeaneen, Linda, Rich, Dale, and Tom. Carol and Vic shared over 67 years together.

Along with being a fulltime mother, Carol worked alongside her husband on the farm. Carol was a faithful member of the Holy Redeemer Catholic Church and served as the President of the Council of Catholic Women, a member of the choir, attended Bible Studies and as a Regent of the Catholic Daughters. She was a hostess of the Welcome Wagon and she started and taught others the game of Pepper at the Adult Community Center.

She loved to entertain and host Rolle Bolle parties. She enjoyed a good book and being with her family, and if you could add a game of cards she was in her delight. She was active on the computer and enjoyed Facebook until the end.

Carol died on Wednesday, March 28, 2018, at the age of 96 years, 3 months, and 3 days. Blessed be her memory.

She is survived by her children, Jeaneen Stelter-Nelson of Slayton, Linda (Bob) Louwagie of Milford, IA, Rich (Pam), Dale (Darcay), Tom (Jodi) Kesteloot, all of Marshall; 15 grandchildren; 34 great-grandchildren; 2 great-great grandchildren; sisters-in-law, Doris Zwach of Milroy, Bernice Zwach, and Judy Kesteloot of Marshall.
