Carmen Yvonne Dedor was born May 10, 1930, in rural Sumner, Iowa, to Erwin and Anna (Judisch) Schwake. She was baptized on Ascension Day, May 29, 1930, at St. John’s Lutheran Church, Spring Fountain (rural Sumner). She attended St. John’s Lutheran School and was confirmed April 18, 1943. She graduated as the class Salutatorian from Sumner High School in 1949. She was united in marriage to Ernest Dedor on September 2, 1950, at St. John’s Lutheran Church. To this union four children were born: Brenda, Rhonda, Randall and Spencer.

Carmen served the Lord with gladness throughout her life. She raised her family in the Christian faith at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Sumner, and served the church as organist, Sunday School teacher, catechism teacher, and in the Lutheran Women’s Missionary League. After Ernest’s death in 2003, she moved to Mason City and was a faithful member of Bethlehem Lutheran Church.

She was preceded in death by her parents, husband Ernest Dedor, and brother Ralph Schwake.

She is survived by her children: Brenda (Bruce) Boyce, Rhonda Dedor, Randall (Kathleen) Dedor and Spencer (Jennifer) Dedor; grandchildren Rachel Williams, Tracie Dedor, Valerie Illing, Richard Dedor and Kenneth Dedor; six great grandchildren; sister-in-law Judith Schwake; brother Harlan Schwake and many nieces and nephews.

Oh how blest are they whose toils have ended; who through death have unto God ascended.
