Carol Ann Margaret (Evenson) Lundell went to be with her Lord and Savior with her loving family around her bedside on Sept. 1, 2009. She was born in Turlock to Rasmus and Victoria Evenson. She was raised on a dairy farm in Turlock. During her childhood, she attended Johnson Joint School and later graduated from Turlock High School, class of 1948.

In 1954, she married Kenneth Lundell of Hughson. Kenneth was a peach and almond farmer and she enjoyed her role as a farmer’s wife. Even in her later years, one could still find her in the orchard during the peach harvest working alongside her beloved husband whom she was happily married to for 54 years. After her marriage, she continued working at Turlock High School until the birth of her first child, when she chose to be a full-time homemaker.
