Carol Wieneke, a beloved friend to everyone at Sanford Health, is bidding farewell to her role as an LPN at Sanford Luverne after 60 years of service. Throughout her six decades at the facility, Carol has made it a point to find joy in the simple moments and choose to see the joy in her work. She believes that if people don’t enjoy their work, they won’t do good work.
Carol has always been known for her caring nature and dedication to her patients and fellow staff members. Her colleague of 13 years, Cheryl Groen, spoke highly of Carol’s character, emphasizing how much she truly cares about those around her and treats every person as a family member.
Even though this is not goodbye forever, Groen knows that Carol will always be her friend and will stop by to both volunteer at the hospital and just check in with everyone from time to time. Carol’s reputation for keeping her word is something that Groen admires and will keep her in high regard as a close friend.
