Carol Therese Dittel (Zywicke) June 28, 1942 - February 12, 2021

Age 78, of St. Paul, MN

Passed away February 12, 2021.

An incredible woman, wife, mother, grandmother, aunt, and friend. A selfless loving woman who not only raised her own seven children, she helped raise her ten nieces and nephews when her only sister passed away suddenly when Carol was 26. Carol was best known for her love for her family and friends. She opened her heart and home providing care for so many. There was always plenty of food, space, love, and, of course, cookies! A room overflowing with family and friends having a good time brought her the most joy. Our lifetime of wonderful memories will help to carry us all forward. Her strength, wit, and heart lives on in many. You are loved beyond measure.

Survived by loving husband of 58 years, James; children, Karen (Frank) Marano, James Dittel Jr, Steve Dittel, Susan (Dan) Sutliff, Lori (Dave) Grounds, Julie McFarland, Patricia (Rufino) Rodriguez; grandchildren, Francesca (Tom Jacobson) & Chiara Marano, Michael & Emily Dittel, Emmett & Ethan Sutliff, Patrick & Siena Grounds, Reyez, Maricruz, Giavonna & Maximus Rodriguez; nephews & nieces Tom (Vina Moeun) Lieberman, Pat Lieberman, Annie (Jim) Richter, Mary (John) Tonsager, Joan Lieberman; grand-nephews & grand-nieces Matthew Wojcik, Sarah (Teip) Matigann, & McKenna Vixayvong, Will (Sara Gaalaas) Richter, Tom (Cory) Richter, Betsy & Scarlett Richter-Gifford, Joe (Kristen) Tonsager, Andy (Sarah) Tonsager, Jake Tonsager; and brother-in-law, Jerome (Barbara) Dittel.
