CAROL J. KINGSTON, age 75, of Waseca peacefully passed away on Friday, December 8, 2017 at her home, surrounded by her loving family.

Carol married Gerald Kingston on May 19, 1962 in Long Prairie. Through the years, Carol enjoyed raising her family as a nurturing stay at home mom. In addition, she worked from her home as a seamstress and drove bus for the local Head Start program. Carol enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren and her sisters, knitting, baking Christmas cookies, and hosting the 4th of July parties at the cabin. But most of all, she enjoyed sharing with Gerald both the simple pleasures and great celebrations of the family they created. She was a member of St. Paul Lutheran Church in Waseca.
