Carolyn M. Lemke, 75, died Thursday, March 18, 2016 at the Hospice Home of Hope in Fond du Lac. She was born in Fond du Lac on September 30, 1940, a daughter of Raymond and Marion (Fruehbrodt) Simon. She married Wesley Lemke on Oct. 28, 1960 and had one daughter Deborah.

When Wal-Mart opened Carol started working there and stayed until her retirement in 1999.
