Carolyn Camilla Ohnstad

Carolyn Camilla Ohnstad, passed away Wednesday, July 31, 2019. Carolyn was born in 1932, a fourth generation resident of Menomonie and became the fifth generation to own a private business in the second block of downtown Menomonie. She served her community through many civic endeavors throughout her life and actively participated on many boards. Carolyn’s most recent service was as sexton, preservationist and stern “sheriff,” maintaining the order and dignity of what will now be her final resting place, Evergreen Cemetery.

Carolyn was loved by many, feared by some, but always wise and thoughtful in her deeds and actions. Her endless strive to make Menomonie a better home through improving her community, will forever serve as a legacy and a “Hallmark” away from the bright lights.
