Carol Mitte

April 21, 1950 — April 22, 2024

Carol Mitte, age 74, of Neillsville, WI passed away after a brief battle with illness on April 22, 2024, at the Marshfield Medical Center surrounded by her family.

During the winter months those plants would be moved inside and cared for creating what her grandchildren referred to as her rainforest. She had a passion for genealogy and had been able to create binders and binders full of family history. Carol also enjoyed spending time thrifting for unknown treasures and spending time with her family; especially at the woods sitting around a campfire.

Her siblings Sharon (Roger) Erickson, Edward (Joan) Purkis, Jerry (Cheryl) Purkis, Rose (Dale) Zawislan, Tina (Daryl) Metcalfe, Mike (Cheri) Purkis and Bonnie Purkis. Carol is further survived by her grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces, and nephews who she all cherished and loved so much.

She is preceded in death by her father, Clyde Purkis and a daughter, Lorie Bryant.
