Carol was born on November 8, 1938, the daughter of Dick and Leah Carey. Carol grew up in the St. Paul and White Bear Lake areas. Carol was united in marriage to Dale Garness in Minneapolis. They lived in Wisconsin for a time and then moved back to Minneapolis where their children would grow up. Carol moved to Zimmerman in 1974 where she met Henry Bernhardt and was united in marriage to him in Texas. The couple lived on the road for about 15 years as Henry’s job required traveling. In 1994 Carol settled down in Princeton and has lived here since. Carol was a pet lover; she loved dogs and especially cats. She enjoyed playing cards with Bev and collecting wind chimes.

Carol is survived by her children, Dale Garness, Glenn Garness, Terry (Rick) Linder, Sherri Garness, Julie (Allen) Lien and Cindy (Dean) Skogman; sister Sharon Miller; and many grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
