Carol Lee Remington was born to Clayton and Elva Mae (Sigmund) Remington on November 26, 1939. She was born in Hettinger and grew up ¼ mile east of Hettinger on the Remington Mink Ranch. Carol went to school in Hettinger to the 8th grade then came home to work on the ranch. In 1960 she married Loran Jorgensen. In 1961 a daughter was born to them, Lilaine (Jorgensen) Brawner. Carol later divorced. Her daughter and Carol came to live at the Remington Mink Ranch. She went to work at the City Café in Hettinger for 8 years. Carol then went to work at the Community Memorial Hospital, now West River Regional Medical Center for 23 years in housekeeping. During her time working there she also worked part time at the City Café. Carol had to retire due to a bad hip.
Carol loved her family. In her early years she always had candy and gum for her niece and nephews when they came to visit. That was very important to them. She loved her grand children, was called “Gramoo” because Lalisa couldn’t say “Grandma”, so she became “Gramoo” to us. She loved playing marbles with Layton, which was their thing. Carol enjoyed Yahtzee and most games.
She always had a good sense of humor, loved a good joke and a funny story.
Carol passed away at the West River Regional Medical Center on Wednesday, March 27, 2019.
