Remembering Carol Wieneke: A Legendary Nursing Professional at Sanford Luverne

Nurse at Sanford Hospital Retires After Six Decades of Dedicated Service

Sanford Luverne has lost one of its most beloved employees, Carol Wieneke, after 60 years of service. She was known for her caring nature and commitment to her patients and colleagues.

Carol’s friend Vicki Nelson retired three years ago, and the two had spent many years working together at Sanford Luverne. As she reflected on her time at the facility, Carol realized that the key to a successful career is finding joy in the simple moments and choosing to see the joy in your work.

Her colleague of 13 years, Cheryl Groen, spoke highly of Carol’s character. She emphasized how much Carol cared about her patients and staff members, treating every person as if they were family members. Groen knows that while it may be goodbye forever, Carol will always be her friend forever and will stop by to both volunteer at the hospital and just check in with everyone from time to time.

Carol’s reputation of keeping her word is something that Groen admires and will keep her in high regard as a close friend. Her legacy at Sanford Luverne will live on through the many lives she touched during her 60-year career.
