Marie Carroll

Marie was born September 3, 1931 in Owatonna, MN to Edward, Sr. and Margaret (Kubicek) Haberman. She graduated from Ellendale High School. Soon after, on January 19, 1950, she married Milo “Bud” Carroll and became a housewife. The two shared a long life together, raising four children: Patti, Jackie, Gordy, and Dan.

Marie was very sweet, helpful, and always smiling. No one remembers her ever being mad. Family was Marie’s pride and joy; she would do anything for them. She never told her kids “no” and was always there when they needed her. Marie loved babysitting her grandchildren.
