Carol Gehrke passed away peacefully at home, surrounded by all those who loved her.
Carol was born on August 15, 1952 in Portland Oregon. Her parents were Dorothy and Reino Hamalainen.
Carol is preceded in death by her loving husband Robert Gehrke, her father Reino Hamalainen, her mother Dorothy Hamalainen, and her brother David Hannah Hamalainen.
Carol Gehrke is survived by her children Rob, Pete, William, Misty Gehrke and nine loving grandchildren.
Carol was the most amazing mother, grandmother, sister, wife, that anyone could ever ask for. If you were lucky enough to be loved by her you were truly blessed. Carol devoted her life to taking care of other people and she truly had a heart of gold and a passion for teaching, guiding, and loving children. She will be truly missed by many, and hopefully she is walking along the beach in heaven with daddy.
