CAROL E. NIEMI, 56, of Greenwood, lost her courageous battle with cancer on August 9, 2018 at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Marshfield, WI. A Celebration of Life will be held for Carol at Cuddie Funeral Home, in Greenwood, on Saturday, August 25, 2018 from 10am to 1pm. Interment will be held at a later date.
Carol Elaine Lightfoot was born on January 6, 1962 in Savannah, GA to Thomas and Florence A. (Williamson) Lightfoot. She grew up in Stone Mountain, GA and graduated from high school in 1980. She was united in marriage to Richard G. Niemi on October 24, 1981. They moved to Greenwood, WI where they raised their two sons, Jeremy and Cody. She worked at Fiskars in Spencer, WI, and then ultimately went back to school to become a nurse and worked at Norwood Health Center, in Marshfield, until the time of her death.
She had a fierce love for her family and was happiest being surrounded by them, filling the room at every family function with her infectious laughter and stories. Carol was a loyal friend to those that had the opportunity to know her. She was very much loved and will be deeply missed. As her son said when she passed, there is going to be one kick ass guardian angel looking out for us.
She is survived by her husband of 37 years Richard; sons: Jeremy of Otsego, MN and Cody of Greenwood, WI; granddaughter: Ashlynn of Big Lake, MN; brother: Doyle (Margaret) Lightfoot of Stone Mountain, GA; step-mother: Barbara Lightfoot of Stone Mountain, GA; along with
many nieces, nephews, in-laws, other relatives and friends.
Carol was preceded in death by her parents; her mother-in-law: Janet Niemi; and brothers-in-law: Brian and Jon.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made in Carol’s name for a memorial to be established at a later date.
