Carley Ramfjord of Palo, left us Sunday, October 3, 2021, after courageously fighting cancer. She was born on Sept. 4, 1933, in Chisholm the daughter of Stephen Lucas and Anne (Naglich) Lucas Coggiola; and graduated in 1951 from Keewatin as the class valedictorian. In 1954, Carley graduated from St. Scholastica’s nursing program. Carley married Duane Ramfjord in 1956. In 1960, Carley set up and supervised the Operating Room at White Community Hospital in Aurora until she was invited to become the Surgeon’s Assistant for East Range Clinic physicians. She supported Duane in his many years helping build and maintain Giant’s Ridge where she and their family skied every weekend. Carley and Duane and family spent a year abroad in England on a teacher’s exchange where she learned a different pace of life, taking time for tea, meeting the Queen Mother, making picnics for the many sightseeing trips and working at the local hospital to experience the British healthcare system. She reveled in hosting many family celebrations and relaxing in “Grandma’s pool” aka Loon Lake.

Carley is survived by her husband, Duane; children: Lisa (Bruce) Elstun, Kari (Peter) Wood, Jaime (Gale) Ramfjord and David (Denise) Ramfjord; grandchildren, Raleigh (Kimberly) Elstun; Ramfjords: Peter (Julie), Lucas, Krystal, Steven, Ian and Jason; Vincent and Raquel Wood; six great-grandchildren; extended family and friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents, brother Conrad Lucas, and son Brian (Margaret) Ramfjord.

A heartfelt thank you to all who made her last years a good finale.

A family service will be held at a later date.
