Hazel Amacher Carr

Hazel Amacher (Carr) passed away on April 3, 2016. She will be missed.

I graduated from St. John's School of Nursing, Huron, SD in 1954, and became an RN. On Oct. 16th, 1954 I married Chuck Carr of Pierre, SD. Chuck had been in the Korean War (Conflict) and was in his Soph. year at SDSU. He (we) finished college in June 1957. He took a job with Sioux Falls Paper Co. in Sioux Falls. Lived there 7 months and were transferred to Watertown, SD. In 1962 Chuck started with adjusting with State Farm in Marshall, MN. Moved to St. Cloud, MN in 1968 when Chuck became Dist. Sales Manager of MFA insurance. The company moved out of the state of MN, but we opted to stay in St. Cloud and he became an Independent Ins. Agent. He retired in 1996.

I worked part/full time as a registered nurse in Brkgs. Watertown, Marshall and St. Cloud, MN. I retired in 1996 also and I love it. I'm involved in antiques, quilting, church work, traveling, bridge (and golf... if I'm forced to do it)!

We've lived in St. Cloud, MN for 32 years. All our kids graduated from HS and Colleges around here. We have 2 sons and 2 daughters. Mike lives in St. Cloud, is Asst. Principal of Sartell MN HS. His wife Sue works as a pharmacy tech. They have 3 children. Charlie is a Jr. at St. John's Univ. at Collegeville, MN. (And punter for the St. John's Football Team.) Jill is a Fr. at St. Cloud State Univ. (in St. Cloud). Michael is a 8th grader in Jr. High.

Steve also lives in St. Cloud, is a Registered Physical Therapist. Owns his own company - "Northern Star PT Ltd." with 4 other therapists. His wife Ruth is a Free lance Court Reporter. They have 3 boys. Eric is also a Fr. at St. Cloud State Univ., Jeff is a Jr. at Apollo HS and Jon is a 6th grader. So there is always a sports or dancing or music events to go to with all the grandchildren around here.

Cathy is a Registered Nurse also. Works full time on the 12 Hr Shifts at "Fairview South" Hospital in Edina in the Heart Center. She is married to Patrick Hartmann who is in Sales Promotion for "911 Emergency Products" a fairly new company, They have Jenny, also a Fr. at Luther College in Decorah, Iowa and loves it there. Zachary who is a 7th grader in Eden Prairie, MN. (They are currently looking at houses in the St.Cloud-Sartell, MN area, and are moving here soon as they sold their home in Eden Prairie, MN!)

Karen is a Senior Designer for Marketing in Shakopee, MN. She has Steven, a 5th grader and Brandon a 3nd grader. So if we don't have quite enough to do and see in SC, we can head south about 65 or 75 miles and get in on more entertainment.

I have seen a lot of you at different reunions Plus the MINI"S. I have NOT missed any of them! Glad we saw a lot of you at the 50th HHS Reunion in Huron Sept. 14th and 15th, 2001. We had a wonderful time! Saw many "young" ??? friends that we hadn't seen in many years. We've got lots of pictures to prove it. Alao a wonderful beautiful BIG Book published by Willard Anderson to prove it.
