Carolyn Joy Koci was born on May 28, 1938, in Phillips, WI, the daughter of Frank Jr. and Julia (Kroupa) Koci. She attended elementary school in the Phillips and Loyal, WI areas, and graduated from Greenwood High School in 1956. Carolyn then attended Mount Mary College in Milwaukee for two years.

She was united in marriage to Francis Kohlnhofer on June 7, 1958, at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Greenwood. They farmed three miles north of Greenwood and Carolyn worked as a C. N. A. doing home care in Greenwood. She later worked at Figi’s, in Marshfield, until 1992 and then at Citizens State Bank, in Loyal, from 1993 to 2003.

She had many interests, but especially loved spending time with and attending her grandchildren’s events, stamping, making cards, the casino, traveling and visiting with her many wonderful friends.

Carolyn was a member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church and its St. Ann’s Society, the Red Hat Society, the Clark County Homemakers, and was a former member of the Clark County Choraliers.

She will be dearly missed by her husband, Francis, of Greenwood; three children: Gary (Carol) of New Berlin, Renee (Dan) Slowiak of Thorp, and Scott of Greenwood; three grandchildren: Brandon and Dustin Slowiak, and Laura Kohlnhofer; and two brothers: Robert Koci and James Koci, both of Sun City, AZ.

She was preceded in death by her parents; and one brother, Frankie.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorials be given in Carolyn‘s name for a fund to be set up at a later date.
