Buddrius, Janelle Janke and Nina Giovenetti Buddrius. Also 2 precious great grandchildren:
Rowan Janke and Harlow Janke which she adored. It was her deepest desire that her family
would read the Bible and follow the Lord Jesus Christ. She was especially happy when playing
the piano and singing praise songs which she loved sharing with her family. Carol had many
talents , which included being a great cook, growing a large vegetable garden , from which she
would can and freeze the bounty. She also worked very hard helping with the farm business
and as a farm wife driving wheat trucks, making meals for the crew and quit often just being an
extra hand when needed. Some of her activities she enjoyed included being in Rainbow and
later a member of Eastern Star and PEO. She enjoyed the peaceful times at the lake. Carol
often spent time outdoors on warm evenings admiring breathtaking sunsets and listening to the
birds singing that so warmed her heart.
Later on in life her health declined and she was forced to move temporarily closer to medical
Mom made many new friends there and likewise, she touched their hearts as well. She
joyfully shared with us how her spiritual journey during these last years was coming to
completion. She looked forward to her Sunday afternoon church services with friends.
Although we miss our mother, grandmother and great grandmother deeply, we are rejoicing in
the reunion she is having with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Her family will miss her very much but find comfort in knowing the promise of meeting her again
in the glorious eternal home that awaits all believers. Carol was preceded in death by both
her parents Leonard and Jeslyn, her brother Loryn, son Deven and husband DeWane. At her
request, there will be a private graveside service.
