Carol J. Tagel, age 73, of Plymouth, passed away on Wednesday, November 9, 2016 at the Aurora Sheboygan Memorial Center with her beloved family by her side.

She was born on January 24, 1943 in Racine, to the late Alex and Emma (Ruppel) Schuppe. She attended St. John’s Lutheran grade school in Racine and Plymouth, and graduated from Plymouth High School.

Carol was employed at Bordens Cheese until her retirement. She enjoyed teaching special education Sunday school for many years. Besides her love for serving in the church, she found great pride in her two sons and five grandchildren. They were what kept a smile on her face. Carol will be remembered for her kind hearted generosity and the love she had for her family.
