Carol Lynn Kingma Schug

January 10, 1947 — April 15, 2024

Carol Lynn Kingma Schug, born January 10, 1947, passed away on April 15, 2024, at the age of 77. She was surrounded by all her loved ones during her final days. Carol graduated from the Professional Business Institute, Minneapolis, in 1968. She received her degree as a Medical Laboratory Technologist. Soon after, in June 1968, she married LeRoy F. Schug in Clarks, Nebraska. While in Nebraska, she worked at Lexington Hospital, and then transferred to Litzenberg Memorial Hospital in Central City, Nebraska. While there, she was the only Laboratory Technologist so worked almost every day, 24/7, for the hospital. LeRoy was hired with AT&T Bell Labs in Westminster, Colorado and they moved to Westminster in November 1969. 

After moving to Colorado, she chose to focus on marriage and family. Her children were born, Jacinda, October 1972, and Jeffrey, April 1975. They moved to their current residence Northglenn in July 1975. She was active in the city exercise programs and participated in many celebratory runs such as the annual Turkey Trot. When her children were older, she actively volunteered in the schools. She spent 6 years as a teacher assistant at Stukey Elementary and participated in activities, such as Bingo Parent, to support the High School Marching Band, while the kids were in High School. She was also active in church and spent many years helping run the Church Garage Sale each Spring.

Carol is survived by, and deeply missed by her husband, LeRoy F. Schug, her children and their spouses, Jacinda and Darrell Wunderlich, and Jeffrey and Pasqualina Schug; her grandchildren: Jacob Schug and his Spouse Lexus Schug, Jessica Schug, David Wunderlich, Jeremiah Schug, Jenna Schug, and Crystal Wunderlich; and her Great Grandson, Cole Schug. She is also survived by her sisters, Katherine Saathoff and Laura Larson. She was preceded in death by her parents, Elmer and Elda Kingma, and In-Laws, Alois and Margaret Schug. She has also many nieces, nephews, and friends who have survived her and miss her.
