Cary Lynne (Rennick) Romsdahl was born on July 22, 1961 in Minneapolis, Minnesota to Wallace and Marlys (Allenspach) Rennick. She attended grade school in Blaine, Minnesota, in 1970, moved to St. James, Minnesota and attended grade school in Ormsby. She graduated from St. James High School in 1979.
On March 22, 1986, she was united in marriage to Stephen Dale Romsdahl at Kansas Lake Lutheran Church in Butterfield, Minnesota. She was Superwoman, a force to be reckoned with! A loving wife, mother, and grandma. She had a passion and zest for life, always there to listen and willing to lend a helping hand. She was the BEST cook, loved the outdoors, camping, boating, snowmobiling and spending time with Steve, the kids, grandkids, friends and had a never-ending list of hobbies. Cary was second in command on the family farm. She could do anything and loved helping Steve and Greg in the field.
Another love in Cary’s life were her bulldogs. She adored each and every one of her dogs, loved traveling to dog shows all around the United States, met thousands of people and acquired many special friends along the way. She recently won the National Championship for Best of Show and many other awards for all of her hard work and dedication.
She is irreplaceable and her memory and legacy will live on forever in the hearts of many.
