Carol Jean Jepson was born to George and Evelyn (Nolette) Jepson on December 22, 1945 in Evergreen Township. She attended school in Frazee and graduated high school in Roseburg, Ore. After school, she was united in marriage to Bill Coleman.
In 1975, Carol moved back to Frazee and was employed at the Detroit Lakes Police Department, along with various other jobs. In 1982, she moved to Coon Rapids and for 15 years worked for Dave's Floor Sanding Company.
After retirement, Carol moved home to Frazee to care for her dad. After George passed away, she lived in Detroit Lakes for a couple of years until her health started to decline, when she moved to Blaine to be closer to her sister.
Carol loved being outdoors. She always had a "green thumb" when it came to gardening. She was extremely fond of horses, and cherished time spent with her children and grandchildren throughout the years.
Surviving Carol are her children, Sheri Coleman of Duluth, Minn., Kelly Coleman of Clearwater, Minn., Ronald Coleman of Moorhead, Minn., and David Coleman of Coon Rapids, Minn.
In addition she is survived by five grandchildren; one great grandchild; one sister, Doreen (David) Mohs of Blaine; and one brother, Terry Jepson of Frazee.
Preceding her in death were her parents; grandson, Devin; and two brothers, Mark Jepson and Roy Jepson.
