Carol Ann (Hurkman) Myren, age 78, of Blaine, went to be with her Lord and Savior on March 7, 2022 after an aggressive battle with cancer. She was born on 3/23/1943, the second child of Marinus and Virginia (Dahinden) Hurkman. She was united in marriage to Lyle Myren on 9/12/1964 at Christ the King Catholic Church in Cambridge, MN. They lived in the Twin Cities for 8 years where their 3 children were born, then moved to Cambridge where they lived for 22 years until the children graduated from high school. They then moved to Isanti and lived on Long Lake for 17 years where the family grew and 13 grandchildren filled their hearts and home.
Carol was a stay-at-home mom until 1976 when she was hired as the first employee to the new dentist in Cambridge, Dr. Steve Schwarten, and she retired in 2005. Carol loved caring for her home and treasured spending time with her children and grandchildren. She enjoyed road trips and vacationing with friends and family, especially getaways in warmer climates in the winter. She loved cooking and entertaining, being involved in church, playing cards, hosting house guests, and spending time with her cousins and friends. She found the greatest joy when she was surrounded by those she loved and creating lasting memories.
Carol is preceded in death by her parents, her sister Geraldine Blade, and brother Ron Hurkman. She will be deeply missed by her loving husband, Lyle, of 57 years, son Steven (Mari), of Fairmont, daughter Christine (Daniel) Westlund of Arden Hills, and son Scott (Tracee) of Blaine, and her special pride and joy, her 13 grandchildren Anthony (Megan), Chelsea, Joey (Julia), Garrett, Aleks (Kelly), Annika, Anders, Ava, Anya, Haylee, Tristen, Gabe, Nolan, and great grandson Easton Myren.
