Carol Latham

Carol Lorraine Latham, 68, was received by God the morning of Friday, June 7, 2019, after a long battle with cancer. She was surrounded by guardian angels and loved ones at that time.

Carol was born Nov. 6, 1950, in Brainerd. Carol was a homemaker with a glorious smile who could light up a room. She was selfless, always putting others first. She loved flowers, cooking, Christmas baking, her three dogs and — most of all — her family.
