Carol Anne Nyseth lived in Galesville, WI when on November 23, 2016 she passed away peacefully in her sleep. Carol was only 54 when she succumbed to the long term effects of her debilitating illnesses.

Carol had a beautiful soul and she lived her life giving to her family never asking for anything more than a little act of love in return. She was a great wife and mother always looking to serve her family or anyone who needed her, even when she was sick or in great pain she would sincerely care about others needs before her own. Her deepest desire was to raise a family and belong to a family that cared for each other. She was saddened by the lack of empathy in the people around her. Carol’s loving and caring nature inspired those who knew her to want to be something more, something better than they were. Love was a serious word to Carol it was not to be used frivolously, if you said you loved than you were held accountable. Love was not just a word it was action. I know that the Bible teaches the same concept but Carol didn’t learn this from the written word, God embedded this wisdom in her soul at a very young age and used Carol to teach me and others the true meaning of love.

Carol had a troubled childhood growing up in an orphanage, never having loving parents or a real home. She didn’t care for material things it was the treasures of the heart that made her happy. It was really difficult to buy her a gift because if asked, what she wanted it was always something that seemed trivial. She enjoyed finding new restaurants, and long drives in the country, steak and eggs, venison, Chinese food, garage sales, fishing, and football cards, the Packers, dancing, playing pool, traveling and discovering new and beautiful places.

I miss Carol; she was my best friend, my partner, my only fan, my anchor, my strength when I am down, my reason for getting up in the morning. I thank God for her, for He knew just what I needed and Carol Anne was always there for me and anyone who needed her.

Carol believed that Jesus Christ died for her, which gives me great comfort knowing that she is with God and her son Kasey Cameron Nyseth, her sister Eve Marie Shelby, and the only man she felt deserved to be called her dad, David Leroy Nyseth.

She is survived by her husband, Larry Nyseth; sons, Jeremy Gosbin and Cameron Nyseth; daughters, Jenna Gosbin and Candra Nyseth; and her granddaughter, Adarra House. 

Memorial services will be on Saturday, December 3, 2016 at 2:00 pm at Smith Funeral Chapel.  Visitation will be one hour prior to the services at the funeral home on Saturday.  Burial will be at Lakeview Cemetery following the service.

  4. Larry, I was Carol’s physical therapist way back when she was so sick at Luther Hospital maybe 25+ years ago. I am so sorry for your loss. What I find most strange is that I have been thinking and reminiscing of Carol alot the last 3 weeks as I’ve had a patient with very similar issues. I have recalled many memories… of Carol’s strong will to get well, her struggles and her fighting determination to get walking again. I have seen Carol occasionally over the years and always enjoyed touching base with her. You have been there for her the whole way. I am so thankful that Carol was able to have her children ( we didn’t know that was going to be possible way back then) and all that love from and for her whole family. Again, please accept my condolences. It breaks my heart to know that Carol is gone but she will not be forgotten. Kathy Abens

  6. I don’t know how to put into words what a great loss Carol is. I lost a very dear friend. I am very sad. My prayers and condolences for you all, her family. Carol was very special to me. Her and I could talk for hours. We would laugh and yes we cried together. She was a very special person . I will forever miss her. God got a Angel when Carol passed over.

  7. The Nyseth family
    My sympthany to your family. It was a surprise to see Carol’s obituary in the paper. I lost touch with your family since Cameron graduated and you moved from Fall Creek. Losing a loved one is very hard, but knowing that Carol is with Jesus and someday we will all be with him is comforting. The Lord is always with us in good and bad days! Trust in Him!

    Cameron, take care!
    Again – so sorry for your loss!

    Sue Scoville
