Carol attended Henry Neill Elementary, Simmons & Holgate Junior Highs and Aberdeen Central (Class of ‘76). She played clarinet in Central’s concert and marching bands. She loved to attend sporting events and travel to concerts with her many girlfriends. After high school, Carol attended Northern State College and worked for Kmart.
On a bitter cold January night in 1979, she agreed to take Jerry Skaare from The Zoo to Snoopy’s, a date that would last 43 years. They soon settled in Aberdeen and began life together. She loved being wife and mother, playing cards and Bingo with her mother and sisters and family gatherings for holidays, late-night poker games, and family picnics at area lakes. She graduated from Stewarts School of Hairstyling and worked at Adam & Eve Salon. At the old YMCA, she was Aerobicizer of the Month. She attended Good Shepherd Lutheran Church where she taught Sunday School and was a member of Mary Circle. She was a frequent volunteer in her children’s classrooms and extracurricular activities. Carol’s passion for Aberdeen Central and Northern State basketball led her family to attend most home games and frequently travel to Golden Eagle away games.
Carol’s family moved to Boulder City, NV in 1995. The team changed but she quickly fell into the same routine, attending her kids’ Boulder City Eagles baseball, football and basketball events. She formed fast friendships with other transplanted families, frequently attending sporting and other events in the Las Vegas area. She also earned an Associate of Arts degree in Medical Coding from the Community college of Southern Nevada. She was a member of Christ Lutheran Church.
When her family moved to Glendale, AZ in 2002, Carol’s world focused on her family and new granddaughter Racquel where she subbed in whenever help was needed, picking her up from school and covering school holidays and breaks. She was an avid Mountain Ridge High football fan while Racquel played and marched in the school’s competition marching band. She worked in the family business until health issues forced her retirement. During the Covid years, Carol & Jerry enjoyed worshiping and communing online with First Lutheran Church in Britton, SD.
Carol was never the loudest in the room but she spoke from the heart. Her smile melted hearts and lit rooms. When Carol’s mother Marie and father-in-law John Leo passed within a year, Carol formed a special bond with her mother-in-law Jeanne, whom she held in such high regard. Carol was also a 12 year breast cancer survivor.
Carol was preceded in death by her parents Harvey and Marie, sister Colleen (Bob) Orr, brothers Steve, David, Gary and Barry Webb. She is survived by husband Jerry, daughter Tiffany, son Joshua and granddaughter Racquel, sister Charleen Engelhart and brothers Brian and Jerry Webb. She also leaves six sisters-in law, five brothers-in-law, as well as twenty-three nieces and nephews.
