Carole Mae Egeland, age 86, passed away peacefully in Edina, MN surrounded by her family on June 14, 2020, after a short illness.
Carole was born May 11, 1934 in Two Harbors, Minnesota of Ellen (Ella) and Carl Shogren.
She married her high school sweetheart, John Egeland, of Two Harbors in 1954. She lived the majority of her life in Two Harbors, relocating later in life to Edina to be a significant part of her grandchildren’s lives.
Carole worked for many years for the Lake Superior School District.
Always the light and life of any gathering, Carole made friends wherever she went, especially at Kane Lake, where she had a cabin for many years. Her family and friends meant the world to her, second only to her commitment to church and her faith. She always had a warm welcome for everyone she met, and she will be deeply missed for the grace and love she brought to our lives.
She traveled the world with her family and friends. Favorite trips included Nevada, Norway, Alaska, the Galapagos, and Africa.
Carole was preceded in death by her husband, John Egeland; her late-in-life friend Jim Jumer; siblings Roy Shogren, Marion Hogenson, and Ralph Shogren.
She is survived by son Todd (Ellen Hahn) of Scottsdale AZ; daughter Terri Johnson of Edina and grandchildren Matt Johnson (Darian), Ryan and Tori Soderberg; and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.
A memorial service will be held at 11 AM on Friday, July 31, 2020 at Lakeview Cemetery in Two Harbors. Following the service, please join the family for an outdoor luncheon at 5054 West Kane Lake Rd. We will observe COVID-19 precautions. Memorial gifts are welcomed for Bethlehem Lutheran Church in Two Harbors.
