Carol Paarmann King Heiney

CLANCY, Mont. — Carol Aulda Paarmann King Heiney passed away Sept. 23, 2013 at Elkhorn Rehab and Healthcare in Clancy, Montana. Carol just wore out due to complications of diabetes.

Carol was born on August 1, 1936 in Clinton, Iowa to Aulda Block Paarmann and Malvern Ardie Paarmann. Carol grew up on the family farm near DeWitt with her three older brothers. Carol was raised to know the importance of farming and family.

Carol married Norman F. King in May 1957 at Grace Lutheran Church in De Witt, Iowa. Carol and Norman settled in Davenport where they were blessed with two children, Denise and Brian. Carol and Norman had a vibrant social life: they loved dancing and entertaining. They participated in the Holy Cross Lutheran Congregation in Davenport and the Jaycees and Jaycettes. Norman passed away following a tragic car accident in 1965.

In August 1967, Carol married Vernon Ralph Heiney and the family moved to Rogers, Arkansas. This union was blessed with one child, Susan. Ralph and Carol owned and operated the Jan-Lin restaurant and drive in. Carol was also a chef at Lost Bridge Resort in Garfield and retired from Emerson Electric in Rogers. Carol and Ralph loved gardening and had a large vegetable garden in their back yard.

In April 2003 Carol moved to Montana to start a new adventure. She lived at Rosetta Assisted Living in Helena and then Elkhorn Healthcare in Clancy. Carol was a woman of many stories, including sharing Sam Walton’s tipping style, and how Paul Harvey had a segment on his program about the Christmas star in her front yard in Rogers. Carol loved Bingo and crafts. On Fridays she looked forward to trips to thrift stores, she called this “goodwillin”. On her birthday, Carol would gather with friends at a local pizza parlor and have pizza and a Pabst Blue Ribbon beer.
