She was preceded in death by son Andrew in May 2017. Brothers Robert Tillma and wife Gloria of Longmont Colorado, Fred Tillma and wife Terri of Brookings, South Dakota and Doug Tillma and friend Deb Childers of Pipestone, Minnesota also survive her.

The Tillma family lived about a mile south of our farm We celebrated birthdays together with other nearby farm kids. . Families gathered at different farm houses on summer evenings while all the kids played outside. So many happy memories from our childhood! We are sorry to hear of Carol’s passing. We extend our sympathy to her family. Sally (Wiarda) Kemink and Randy Kemink

I was very surprised to hear of Carol's passing. We grew up together, rode the bus to school every day, and played trombones in the band together for many years. She was always fun, light hearted, generous, friendly and loving. I know she will be missed by many. My sympathies to the family. Arlys Gleysteen Sikorski
