Carol J. Dalke, age 90, of Appleton passed away on February 6, 2021. Carol was born on December 19, 1930 in Appleton to Ernest and Elsie (Staple) Huth. She married Ronald Dalke at St. Paul Lutheran in Appleton on November 12, 1955 and he preceded her in death on April 22, 2013. Carol loved children and provided in home day care for many local families. Not having children of her own, she took great pride and joy in helping care for other children and it showed on her face, every time she talked about the children she took care of. She also worked as a cleaning lady with Clean Power until she retired at age 76. She enjoyed cooking for family and friends. If you went to visit Carol, you wouldn’t go away hungry. She loved all animals especially her dogs and also liked gardening, and working in her flower gardens.
Carol had many loves. Ron, family and friends were of course the most important. She loved going to her sister and brother-in law, Lois and Paul’s house to help build Truck Box Trailers. She also enjoyed getting together with her siblings, Arlene, Margie, Lorraine, Lois, Don and Elton, along with their spouses, for holiday meals and get togethers. Visits to Ron’s family for holidays and get togethers were also filled with joy.
She will be sadly missed by all who knew her.
She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Ron and many beloved family.
