Carol was born Dec. 26, 1934, to Charles (Bud) and Donna Buus in Crookston, Minn. They moved to Bemidji, Minn. where Carol graduated from BHS in 1954. Carol also attended BSU where she had thoughts of becoming a teacher. She met her husband Ted while working as a waitress at the Mileage Cafe and they were married on Sept. 14, 1957. They had four boys while living in Bemidji and then moved to Superior, Wis. in 1973, where fate brought her another son later in life. Carol enjoyed rosemaling, painting gifts for her family, reading, cooking, collecting dolls and beautiful porcelain.
She is survived by her husband Theodore (Ted) Sr. of Foxboro, Wis., her five sons, Ted Jr. (Kristi) of Hibbing, Minn., Steve (Linda) of Bemidji, Minn., Randy (Suzy) of Foxboro, Wis., Tom (Lynda) of Greenbush, Minn. and Chris (Heidi) of Superior, Wis., 14 grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren, brother Charles (Shirley) Buus of Bemidji, sister Patti (Jack) Eastman of Bemidji, Minn. and a very special friend Tammy Torgerson of Foxboro, Wis.
Carol was preceded in death by her parents and her brother Pete Buus.
Carol's wishes were to be cremated and her remains will be buried at a later date in Bemidji at Greenwood Cemetery.
The family would like to extend their gratitude to the Lighthouse of Superior (Assisted Living and Memory Care) and the wonderful staff that loved and cared for Mom during her time there and especially in her final days, we would also like to thank Hospice for their help and support.
