In Memory

Carole Sue Freemole

December 12, 2012

Carole Sue Freemole was born in Belle Fouche, S.D., Jan. 19, 1947, the last of four children of Fred and Grace Freemole.

The family later moved to Rapid City where Carole graduated from Central High School where her activities included her popular ability to twirl batons of fire. She attended college in Wyoming then returned to Rapid City where she married Cal Fuss and started a family. They had two children, Troy, now 45 and living in Granada, Nicaragua, and Tiffany, 41, who lives in Myrtle Beach, S.C.

In the 1980s Carole returned to college at the University of South Dakota and earned her bachelor's degree. She later moved to Fort Collins, where she earned her master's degree and worked for nearly two decades as a counselor at Colorado State University. She also maintained a private practice where she focused mostly on helping the underprivileged.

Carole was well-respected in her profession and worked tirelessly in search of new methods that would be beneficial to her clients. She was also a popular speaker on campuses and at industry conventions on the different techniques in which she specialized.

She loved the outdoors and exploring the beauty of Colorado, her native South Dakota and other areas. Carole also was passionate about spending time with her friends and family, loved animals, was an avid reader and worked for justice and equality for all people, doing everything she could to make the world a better place for all.

She is survived by her two children, four grandchildren, Abigail, Ashley and Amanda Kirschenmann and Chloe Lindsay, older brother Ron Freemole, and a tight, loving extended family.

Carole died of natural causes in her Ft. Collins home on Dec. 2. A memorial service will be held at 1 p.m. Friday, Dec.14 at the Danforth Chapel on the Colorado State University campus oval. The Rev. Ritchie Bibelheimer will officiate. Memorial contributions may be made to The Autism Society in care of Vessey Funeral Service. Please sign the guestbook at
