Carol Y. Landberg, 86

Carol Yvonne Tilleson was born Dec. 19, 1931, in Elk Mound, Wisconsin, the daughter of Carl M. and Hilda (Braaten) Tilleson. She attended high school in Boyceville, Wisconsin, and then worked as a ward clerk at St. Olaf Hospital in Austin from 1964 until 1995. On Feb. 16, 1951, Carol married Richard Landberg at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Menomonie, Wisconsin. Carol and Richard made their home in Austin, where they raised their four children. Family was a priority for the Landbergs. They enjoyed camping and fishing trips and Carol also liked to dance and play cards. Traveling in their RV was another special pastime for them. Carol was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother who will be dearly missed by family and friends.
