Carole Marie (Anderson) Marson, age 84, passed away on Friday, November 20, 2020 at St. Crispin’s long term care facility in Red Wing, Minnesota where she had resided for the past 2 years. Carole was born on December 18, 1935 to Verne and Evelyn Anderson in rural Ophiem, Illinois, and she graduated from Aledo-Woodhull High School in 1953. She met her future husband John Marson on a blind date and they were married on July 14, 1954 at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church in Hudson, Wisconsin.
Carole was a homemaker for many years and also worked at St. John’s Hospital later in life as a dietary aide. Carole and John recently celebrated 66 years of marriage and throughout the time raised 9 children and welcomed 22 grandchildren, 33 great-grandchildren to the family, with more on the way. Along with the many family activities, they had a lifelong hobby of camping and travel; especially enjoying many visits to the North Shore of Minnesota and Wisconsin.
Carole was a generous and caring person who even with a big family, always made sure that there was room for more around the table.
