Carol was born on October 20, 1943 in St. Cloud to Frank and Carola (Bellmont) Schreifels and was raised in Richmond. She married Raymond G. Theis on November 21, 1964 at Sts. Peter and Paul Catholic Church in Richmond. Some of Carol’s work memories include Fingerhut Companies, providing daycare and being a Building Manager for the St. Cloud Labor Home for 45 years. She was a member of St. Peter’s Parish and Christian Women, the UCT, the Waite Park American Legion Unit #428 Ladies Auxiliary, charter member of the St. Cloud Eagles Aerie #622 Auxiliary and past secretary for two bowling leagues.

Carol’s passion to old time dancing gave Ray the privilege to “Have the Last Dance.” She also enjoyed bowling, camping, fishing and travelling with Ray. Above all, she treasured time with her family, especially her grandchildren.

Carol is survived by her husband of 54 years, Ray; sons, Brian (Rhonda) of New Ulm, Randy (Randi) of Detroit Lakes, Glenn (Steph) of Sartell, Travis (Melisa) of St. Cloud; grandchildren, Chelsea, Cody, Rachel, Tanya, Alexandra, Grace and Noah; three great grandchildren; and siblings, Yvonne (Ervin) Schreifels of Annandale, LaDonna (Ed) Butenhoff of Holdingford and David (Linda) Schreifels of Rockville.

She was preceded in death by her parents; and brother Eldred.
