Carol Nothem, 58 |
Carol Nothem (nee Beisbier), the beloved wife of the Rev. David Nothem, went to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Saturday, Aug. 6, 2016, at the age of 58. Carol was surrounded by her loving family.
Carol was a 1976 graduate of Kewaskum High School and a 1995 graduate of Maranatha Baptist University. She graduated with a business management degree as well as a Bible degree.
Carol served the Lord alongside her husband at First Baptist Church of Campbellsport for 14 years. Carol was a true servant of the Lord who performed many duties for the church: cutting the lawn, cleaning the church, preparing meals at potlucks along with ministering to others. If something needed to be done, she would gladly do it.
Carolís faith has been an inspiration to those around her. One of her favorite activities was bible reading; she would read through the entire bible each and every year. She enjoyed any opportunity to share her faith with others. Even throughout the dying process her faith did not falter, but only grew in strength. What an encouragement!
In her personal life, Carol was an extremely charitable person. She enjoyed preparing meals and serving others. She always placed the needs of others before her own.
A most cherished activity of Carolís was spending time with her grandchildren. She was a very loving and giving grandmother. Other favorite activities of Carolís included hiking the Kettle Moraine Ice Age Trail, gardening, baking, painting and fly fishing for bluegill. She was exceptionally talented at baking and fishing. Carol leaves behind her loving husband, the Rev. David Nothem; her loving daughters, Jill Nothem (Worden), husband Brad, and Stacy Nothem (Jager), husband Jeff; and five beautiful grandchildren, Alathia Worden, Philip Worden, Daniel Jager, Emily Jager and Brooke Jager. She also leaves behind her dad, Cornelius Beisbier; mother, Evelyn Beisbier (nee Weis); and her four sisters, Mary Doll (nee Beisbier), Patti Buehler (nee Beisbier), Laura Boltman (nee Beisbier) and Ellen Ferreire (nee Beisbier).
She is preceded in death by her father in-law, Ralph Nothem, and sister in-law, Betty Nothem (nee Christen).
