How Did We Do?

Karrol M Wenzel, 73, died Sunday, March 19 at her home in Goodview. Karrol was born November 28, 1943 in Winona to Francis and Margaret Hengel. She grew up in Winona where she met and married Ronald Wenzel on April 24, 1965. They had two wonderful boys, Chad and Jason.
Karrol worked at Lake Center and then Winona State for 30 years in the computer department.
After Karrol retired she spent a lot of time volunteering at the Winona Area Humane Society. During her time there she acquired a few cats. Once they had 3 cats in the house they decided she should cut back on her volunteering time to avoid acquiring any more pets.
Karrol was a wonderful cook. Her meals and recipes will be passed down for generations to come. Her Wednesday night family meals will be greatly missed.
Aside from her love of cats her true love was her family, especially her grandchildren. She loved everything about being a grandma, including her vast collection of porcelain dolls, going to the casinos and garage sales.
Karrol is survived by her husband, Ron; sons, Chad and Jason (Chelsie); grandchildren, Cody (Mariah), Nick, Zach (Michaela), Mikey, Paige, Cameron, Whisper, Jordan, Tanker and Kimmy; great-grandson, Montreal; siblings, Richard (Ada) Hengel and Randi (Bill) Reinarts; uncle, Michael Hengel; nieces, Lauri Roach, Cyndi Wehlage, Carla "Charlie" (James Burkhalter, Jr.) Hengel; great nieces and nephews, Brittany Dworschak, Shelby Hengel, Tre Wehlage, Noah Roach, Jacob Hengel, Nathan (Happy) Hengel; great-great nephew, Ezekial Stevens. Karrol is preceded in death by her parents.
Karrol will be missed by special friends, Dianne Huff, Sandy Creeley, Nancy Malotke, Joan Kierlin and her "Sister of her heart", Laurie Hostettler.
A memorial service for Karrol will be held 11:30 AM, with visitation starting at 9:00 AM, Saturday, April 1, 2017 at the Hoff Celebration of Life Center, Goodview. Private family interment at St. Mary's Cemetery.

My sympathies to the family and friends of Karrol. I worked with her for 3 years in the Registrars office of Winona State. A very kind and generous lady. She will be missed by many.

So sorry to hear of Karols passing. We always enjoyed visiting with her when we were back there. Toni has fond memories of staying with Karol when we were back there before we were married. She was a wonderful lady. Ron and Toni Klinger

Ron Chad Jason and family,
It was really nice to know Karroll, she was always so welcoming and so pleasant to be around. In our days we did have fun and good laughs. I know your family and mine will miss her baking and cooking for those special family occasions.
