Caroline L. Farrell

November 20, 1924 — November 7, 2021

Caroline L. Farrell, age 96 of Oshkosh, WI, went home to the Lord on Sunday, November 7, 2021. She was born on November 20, 1924 to the late Frank and Leda (Netz) Miller in the Oshkosh area. After the early death of her father, she was raised by her mother and stepfather, Berend “Ben” Wiegmann.

Caroline’s strong faith goes back to her roots at Zion Lutheran Church in Oshkosh. Later in life, she became a dedicated member of Chapel by the Sea of South Padre Island, TX. In more recent years, she attended First English Lutheran Church of Oshkosh.

She was a very active member of each community she lived in throughout her life. When she resided in Port Isabelle she was chosen "Person of the Year". She was a member of the Board, and also served as President of “Friends of the Library” for the Port Isabelle Library. She was instrumental in the fundraising for and building of the new Port Isabelle Library, and later the addition of its Children's wing. While living in Oshkosh, she served as a docent at the Paine Art Center and Gardens, as well as Worthy High Priestess of White Shrine, a Masonic group.

Caroline is survived by her children, David (Carla) Schrader and Diane Mueller; grandchildren: Sarah Nigl, Matthew (Angie) Schrader, Christopher (Kari) Mueller, and Meredith (Erik) Florentz; 11 great grandchildren, and one great-great grandchild; brother: Kenneth (Madeline) Wiegmann; brother-in-law: Richard (Joyce) Schrader; aunt: Betty Kroona. She is further survived by many nieces and nephews.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by four husbands, Clarence Schrader, Harold Barber, Clifford Farrell, and William Leslie; sister: June (Harold) Metko; brother-in-law: Robert (Beatrice) Schrader.
