Carol Jean Steinberg was born January 27, 1940 in Embarrass, WI, daughter to the late Leonard & Evelyn (Berndt) Schmidt. She was a 1958 graduate of Clintonville High School. Carol was united in marriage to Richard “Dick” Steinberg at Zion Lutheran Church, Embarrass on June 1, 1963. Carol loved her Lord and was dedicated to her church. She taught Sunday school, Vacation Bible School, directed choir, and helped with lady's aid. She was a record-breaker cookbook collector and enjoyed planning and cooking elaborate meals. She was a talented ceramic painter, card shark, candy maker, and QVC shopper. Carol had a heart of gold. She was a devoted mother, grandmother, friend, and wife. Her favorite place to relax was at the cottage, looking at the lake, swimming, and fishing. Carol's humor brightened our lives and made us all see the humor in the world.
