Carol Faye Krieg (Sather) passed away on March 27, 2024, at her home surrounded by family and her beloved pets after a courageous 14-year battle with Alzheimer's Disease.

Carol was born to Henry "Hank" and Elizabeth "Betty" Sather in Williston, ND, on Jan. 10, 1941, and resided in Arnegard, ND, until her family moved to Sidney, MT, in 1942. Carol attended elementary, middle, and high school in Sidney, graduating in 1959 from Sidney High School. She was active in cheerleading and loved to dance and hang out with her friends and family. During this time, she also helped her mother, working as a waitress at the Wheel Inn and Valley Hotel Café.

After high school, Carol attended Dickinson State Teachers College in Dickinson, ND, earning a degree in elementary education. After graduation she taught school in Crane and Savage, MT. During this time her two sons were born, Don in 1962 and Joe in 1966. Her family moved to Bozeman, MT, in 1967, followed by a move to Albion, WA, in 1969 and then Watford City, ND, in 1974. Carol and her family moved to Killdeer in 1975 where she remained until her passing.

In Killdeer, Carol worked as a homemaker and as a bookkeeper for many local businesses. In 1988 she began employment at the Hilltop Home of Comfort, first in the kitchen and then as a nurse's aide. She remained there until her retirement in 2009. She treasured her years there, getting to know the many residents who lived there was a high point of her career. In 1989, Carol returned to Dickinson State University to get recertified in elementary education. After graduation in 1991, she was able to fill many short- and long-term substitute teaching positions in Mandaree and Twin Buttes around her schedule at Hilltop. She must have made an impression on her students as years after her final teaching job in Twin Buttes one of her students tracked her down so that he could introduce her to his wife. That really made her day.

Carol most enjoyed spending time with her friends and family, playing games, talking, and exploring the world. She enjoyed dancing and was known to cut a rug with the best of them when the opportunity arose. She was a constant source of love and moral support for her sons Don and Joe, and words cannot begin to express the deep-felt gratitude we have for the role that support and love had in shaping the men we are today. Carol loved her grandchildren with all her heart and watching them grow up and find success in life was a great joy to her.

Losing her has left a large hole in our hearts but we find solace in the realization that she has been reunited with her parents and that her mind is once again as free as a feather on the wind. Carol, mom, grandma, we love you and we will never forget you, and we look forward to being reunited with you in the future. So goodbye for now, but not forever.

Carol is survived by her sons, Donald Krieg, Kalispell, MT, and Joseph Krieg, Killdeer, ND; her grandchildren, Levi Krieg, Kalispell, MT, Jake Krieg, Kalispell, MT, and Morgan Krieg, Seattle, WA; her sisters, Marilyn Timmons, Kalispell, MT, and Shari Sather, Billings, MT; and numerous nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her mother, father and numerous aunts and uncles.
