Carol R. Mickelson, age 84, of Green Bay, passed away on Monday, February 5, 2018. She was born in Green Bay on April 15, 1933, to the late Ervin and Gertrude (Anderson) Klahn. Carol graduated from Green Bay East High School in the Class of 1951. She worked as an office manager from Prudential Insurance for nine years before being a stay-at-home mom. Carol was united in marriage with Clarence Mickelson on September 18, 1954, at St. Paul Lutheran Church in Green Bay. She was a member of First Presbyterian Church where she was a treasurer, pantry volunteer, in the Women’s Circle, and Pres-folks. Carol was an active member of the YMCA, doing weekly exercise classes and swimming. She also enjoyed doing word searches and crosswords, puzzles, playing cards and board games, and baking desserts for her sweet-tooth husband, kids, and grandkids.
