Redlin Funeral Home

Carol Virginia Beckius , Age 72


February 05, 1947 --December 14, 2019

Carol Virginia Beckius passed away December 14, 2019 at the Hospice House in Baraboo. She was born February 5, 1947 to Stewart and Arlene (Holsaple) Hoege.

She married James Beckius in June 1967. To this union, one son, Joseph James, was born.

In her earlier years, Carol worked as a secretary in the Sauk County Courthouse for District Attorney, John Langer. She was a Hunter Safety teacher at the National Guard Amory. She worked at Circus World Museum as a trolley driver and was a school bus driver for over 25 years. She engaged in making crafts with her school bus kids and kept in touch with all of them.

Carol owned several horses in her lifetime and taught many children how to ride. When she was unable to take care of her last horse, Bandy, she sent him down to Jessica Coles Training Stables where he is being used as a special needs therapy horse. A few days before her death, Jessica brought Bandy to the Hospice House parking lot to see her for the last time.

She was also surprised with a hurried visit from North Dakota, by a former riding student, Jenna Litscher.

Carols most prized possessions were My Joe and My Bandy.

Carol was preceded in death by her husband and her parents.

She is survived by her son, Joe; her sister, Jane Perry; brother, James Hoege; several nieces, nephews and cousins, along with many close neighbors and friends.

A memorial service will be held on Thursday, Feb. 6, 2020 at 3 p.m. at Trinity Episcopal Church with Father Dave Mowers officiating. Visitation will be held from 2 p.m. until the time of service at the church.

The family would like to thank Father Dave Mowers, the staff at the Hospice House, retired Pastor Bill Haskins, and all the visitors in the past two weeks.
