Carolann Hesch age 77 of Crosby went home to be with her Lord on November 28, 2016 at the Cuyuna Regional Care Center in Crosby. She was born on November 2, 1939 in St. Cloud to Mathias and Eileen (Muyres) Hesch. Carolann graduated from Peqout Lakes High School. She became certified as a Psychiatric Technician and worked for several years at Brainerd State Hospital. She was compassionate for children from broken homes and became a foster parent for many disadvantaged children. She was a member of St. Joseph's Catholic Church in Crosby and found joy participating in the choir. She was also a member of the National Society of Catholic Foresters, St. Mary's Court 854 , the Myrin-James American Legion Auxiliary, and the Cuyuna Range Women's Club. She enjoyed volunteering at the Cuyuna Regional Care Center.
Carolann is survived by two daughters, Laurie (Steve) Peterson of Manhattan Beach and Melody Harris of Maple Plain; her mother, Eileen Paulson of Sauk Rapids; four grandchildren and four great grandchildren.
Preceding Carolann in death are her father and one sister, Beverly LaCoursiere.
She was the family's prayer warrior and daily brought her family before the throne in prayer. She had beautiful and bountiful gardens, was an amazing cook, and loved spending time with her family. Her passing has left a huge void in our lives and she will be greatly missed.
A private family service is being planned at a later date. Arrangements are with the Koop Funeral Home in Crosby.
