Eagle River

Carolyn Ruth Tesch, age 90, of Eagle River, WI, died Wednesday April 24,2024 at Marshfield Medical Center-Marshfield of cancer.

Carolyn is survived by her husband, Roger Tesch; son Michael Tesch (Gayle), Wausau, WI; daughters Theresa Farkas (Mike), Cross Lake, MN, Susan Lund (Jim), Chatham, IL and Mary Klunenberg (Greg), Denver, IA and 11 grandchildren and 8 great grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her parents, James R. Davis and Hazel Ruth Mauck Davis, brother Don Davis, sister Charlotte Reed and brother James D. Davis.

Carolyn was born on March 27, 1934, in Danville, IL where she attended grade school and high school.   She was an excellent student with a sharp mind and graduated from St. Elizabeth’s School of Nursing in Danville, IL on August 29, 1954. Throughout her career as an RN she practiced in many areas including hospital nurse, emergency room nurse, traveling home health nurse, jail nurse, county health department nurse and hospice nurse.

Carolyn married Roger, the love of her life, on August 30th, 1955, in Danville, IL.

Carolyn was a loving wife, mother and grandmother.  Her life cannot be summed up in these few short paragraphs. She was an excellent and compassionate nurse, a true friend and a good neighbor.  She and Roger enjoyed volunteering at the Vilas County Food Bank for many years.  Carolyn was an avid reader, crossword puzzle aficionado and loved the casino.  She was a ferocious Scrabble player who started every day with a few games.  She enjoyed nothing more than consistently beating her children and grandchildren in the game she loved.  

Carolyn was witty, kind, loving and a role model for all of her family.  She was a woman of strong faith who loved deeply, prayed daily and the world is a little less bright without her.  She will be sorely missed by all who knew her.

Carolyn will be cremated.   A Celebration of life will be held this summer.
