Carol was born in Marysville on October 6, 1954, to Allen and Gertrude (Zumbahlen) Holle.  She attended St Gregory’s Catholic School and graduated from Marysville High School in 1972. After high school, Carol attended the Newman School of Nursing in Emporia, KS and graduated in 1975. While in high school Carol met the love of her life Scott. They were united in marriage on November 8, 1975 at St Gregory’s Catholic Church in Marysville. To this union their two children, Erin and Chris completed their family. Carol worked at St Joseph of the Plains in Cheyenne Wells, CO until moving back to Marysville in 1978 where she worked a short time at Community Memorial Hospital; she worked for Dr Coy’s clinic until 1985 where she left and went to work at the Hanover Hospital. Carol was a floor nurse and then became the Director of Nursing in 1989 and remained there until 2004. Hanover Hospital was a place where Carol made several lifelong friends and grew to become a great leader and nurse. Her staff at Hanover became family over her years there and it showed with the love and compassion the staff showed while she was ill. In 2004 Carol and Scott moved to Omaha NE. Carol then worked for Ambassador of Omaha as the Medicare manager and then for Life Care Center of Elkhorn as a Director of Nurses where she earned the Life Cares nurse of the year in 2012; this honor is given to one nurse by Life Care and their 200 facilities nationwide. Carol retired in 2014 and moved back to Marysville into her childhood home. During her retirement Carol enjoyed her monthly “girl day trips” with Gail, Patti and Sharon to different small towns in Kansas and Nebraska, where they went shopping, enjoyed matinees and tried the “local” restaurants. Carol belonged to the Preceptor Zeta Chapter of Beta Sigma Phi, a true sisterhood of amazing women that Carol enjoyed spending time with and participating in their activities. Carol was a sports fanatic and loved attending and watching KU Basketball and Chiefs football games. She spent as much time as she could with her grandchildren attending their soccer, football and volleyball games and never missed a grandparent’s day at their school. Carol was an avid reader, loved flowers and her garden and was a card shark when it came to spades and pinochle with Sherri, Denise and Jane when they were beating Gator, Don and Jeff. Carol was a hardworking, dedicated wife, mother, grandmother and friend. She loved her friends and family and always saw the best in everyone. You knew you were special to her if you earned the “sissy” status. Carol is survived by husband Scott; daughter Erin Slupianek of Marysville; son Chris (Amanda) Slupianek of Parkville MO; grandchildren Ashlyn and Jax Slupianek of Parkville MO; sister, Rita (Rodney) Spellman of Hiawatha KS; brother, Allen (Peggy) Holle of Pewaukee WI; mother-in-law, Jeannine Slupianek of Marysville; brothers-in-law, Mark (Patty) Slupianek of Marysville; Eric (Karie) Slupianek of Kearney MO; several nieces and a nephew; great nieces and nephews and several cousins. A memorial fund has been established and will be designated later.  Contributions may be sent in care of Kinsley Mortuary.
