Years later, after the adoptions, Carol decided to attend Augustana University in Sioux Falls. There, she graduated (summa cum laude) with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Journalism and English.

Carol was preceded in death by her parents, Orval and Nona Lambertz, one brother, Charles Lambertz, two sisters; Renee Hagen, Teresa Lambertz, and recently passed step-mother Betty Lambertz. Rest now Carol, you’ve done your job on the earth. I believe God is pleased with your work.
