Carolyn Rasmussen

Long time Ephraim summer resident Carolyn Rasmussen, age 89, passed away Saturday in her home in Fairhope, Alabama. Carolyn was preceded her in death by husband Robert (Bob) Rasmussen. Carolyn first came to Ephraim as a young girl with family. She actually met her future husband when they were young teens. The four years difference in age discouraged any relationship from developing.

During WWII, Carolyn worked in a binocular factory in St. Louis and attended Washington University. Shortly after the war, the aforementioned relationship with Bob was re-kindled when Bob moved to Carolyn’s hometown of Kirkwood, MO to work for her Uncles’ insurance company.

After a courtship, they were married on 28 June 1946 in Kirkwood. The wedding was held just down the street from Carolyn’s parents home at her Aunt and Uncle’s backyard (Ephraim summer residents, Spencer and Libby Gould).

Carolyn and Bob lived in Kirkwood until moving to Frontenac, MO in 1966. After raising two children, they moved to Princeville, HI in 1981. They split time between Princeville and Ephraim for 30 years. As their health deteriorated, they moved to Fairhope, AL to be near daughter and grandchildren/great-grandchildren.

Carolyn is survived by Daughter Becky and Terri Maddox (Mobile, AL) and son Peter and Susan Rasmussen (Whitefish Bay, WI). Her family extended to include four grandchildren, Jenifer and Stephen Carpenter and their children Cole, Samuel and Corrine; Logan and Melanie Elliott and their children Grace, Ann and Katie Claire, Kris and Dorina Rasmussen and their daughter Nora and Kari Rasmussen.

A simple service will be held graveside at Bellefontaine Cemetery on Saturday, 23 August.
