At the dawn of a new day, Jesus took His precious Christmas Eve angel, Carol Jean Anason, home with Him on January 19th, 2022.
Carol was born December 24th, 1938, in Black River Falls, WI to Roy and Dorothy (Matysik) Abrahamson, the eighth child of nine and first girl after seven boys.
Carol graduated from Fairchild High School in 1956. While she was in high school, she went to State for Clarinet and enjoyed many other activities. After high school she went to work at 3M in St Paul, MN.
She met the love of her life, Lamoine A. Anason at the Silver Dome Ballroom in Neillsville. They were married June 1st, 1957, at St John’s Lutheran Church. They honeymooned out west in the Badlands and Yellowstone National Park. After returning to Wisconsin, they farmed dairy cattle and raised a family.
Being the first girl after seven boys Carol grew up loving sports and enjoyed following local sports teams and listening to broadcasts by Larry Hoeser. Other past times included roller skating, dancing, bowling, and softball. She was an active member of St John’s Lutheran Church and participated in hand bells, choir, and alter guild. Most of all she enjoyed spending time with her family attending many of their school events which are well documented by hundreds of pictures and artwork creations hanging on the walls, cabinets, and refrigerator.
Carol will be greatly missed by her husband of 64 years, Lamoine; her children, Charlene (Jon) Siebert, Cheryl (Ivan) Alf, Larry (Kay) Anason, Kevin (Connie) Anason, and Kathy (Gary) Reither.
