Carol Ann (Lindquist) Kohler, age 81, a lifelong Chesterton resident, went to her eternal home on Thursday, November 22, 2018.

Carol was born on November 15, 1937, in Michigan City, Indiana, to Lucille and Oakley Lindquist.

Carol married Gordon on July 2, 1955. They were married for 50 years. Carol was an excellent cook and worked as a Head Chef for the Chesterton High School. She was the manager of the Costas Foods Deli for many years and her most enjoyable work happened at the Chesterton Moose where she along with her helper/husband, Gordy would pack the house with her tasty cuisine. But her most loved work was that of caring for babies. Carol ministered to her own families’ children, and also the babies at Liberty Bible Church for three years where her “baby-whispering talents” were put hard to work.
