Carol Jeanne Bina, 87, of La Crosse, died on Tuesday, April 9, 2019 at the Benedictine Villa in La Crosse. She was born on November 5, 1931 in La Crosse to Lester and Annie (Knobloch) Cilley, and raised by her grandparents, Joseph and Alma Knobloch. Carol attended State Road Elementary and graduated from Aquinas High School in 1950. She began working at the New Villa at a young age, and married Leo F. Bina on November 12, 1953 in St. Peter’s Catholic Church, Middle Ridge, WI. Carol and Leo had a dairy farm in Middle Ridge for 25 years and were active members of St. Peter’s Catholic Church. Carol also worked at Hansen’s Bakery in Bangor for ten years. Carol and Leo loved traveling throughout the United States and Europe. She enjoyed spending time with friends playing cards, and always remembered to send a card to family and friends for holidays and special events.

Carol is survived by her special family, Carl Kirschner of Viroqua, Jim and Barb Kirschner of Chetek, Steve and Beverly Kirschner of Hixton, Donald and Colleen Kirschner of Black River Falls, Jayne and Larry Olson of Viroqua, and Steve and Robin Bahr of Barre Mills, and her in-laws, Mary Bina, Joe Bina, Margaret Bahr, Delia Bina, and numerous nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her husband Leo, her parents, her sister Marian and her husband Tony Kirschner, and her brothers and sisters-in-law, Bernie Bina, Jim and Mary Ellen Bina, Tom Bina, George Bahr, and Mary Bina.

The family would like to also extend a special thank-you to the staff at Benedictine Villa for their wonderful care of our aunt for the past year, and Mayo Clinic Hospice.

Those we love don’t go away, they walk beside us every day. Unseen, unheard, but always near. Still loved, still missed, and very dear.
