Carol Marie was born Dec. 21, 1937 to Cecil and June (Nelson) Smith in Blue Earth. She graduated in 1957. On Sept. 10, 1963 she married Roger Edwin Adams and then later divorced. Carol and the children moved around several times but Carol always considered Blue Earth home.
Carol enjoyed sewing, knitting, gardening and cooking. If she wasn’t doing one those things you would most likely find her watching her favorite TV shows or listening to Elvis Presley. She had a love of cats and birds, especially cardinals. She was an avid bingo player as well. She was known around Chatfield as the lady on the scooter with the sparkly hat. Those that knew her will miss her big heartfelt smile and her love for her grandkids will never be forgotten.
Left to cherish such wonderful memories are her children, Susan Manthe, of Minnesota Lake, Laura Adams (Matt Hanson), of Chatfield and Robert “Cecil” Adams (Cheryl Newman), of Mankato; her grandchildren, Brooke (Andrew), Ashley (Alli), Tyler, Alexandra (Lexi), Taylor, Aleisha and Elena. Her first great-grandchild is due soon. Her sister, Joanne Koehler, as well as many other family members and friends will miss her too.
She is preceded in death by her parents; brother, Robert Cecil Smith (stillborn); sister, Delores (Peggy) Cyphers; brother-in-law, Alvin (Al) Cyphers; brother-in-law, Charles (Zeke) Koehler, and ex-husband.
