Carolyn Kathryne Faul Klein was born July 27, 1929, to Charlie F. and Carolina Seibel Faul at the family home. The Faul farm was southwest of Harvey in rural Schiller Township. She was the 11th child out of 17 in the C.F Faul family. She attended a country school, Harvey High School, Minot State and Tabor College in Hillsboro, KS. This schooling allowed her to teach at Harvey and Rosehill. She married Leonard Klein on September 3, 1952, at the Harvey MB Church. They made their home 4 ½ miles north of Alsen. She helped her husband on the farm, cooked at Alsen School and managed the Alsen Café for many years. She accepted Christ as her Savior at approximately age 13. She was later baptized in Coal Mine Lake by Pastor Warkentin. Carolyn was active in the Rosehill M.B. Church, Salem Bible Church, Gideon’s women’s auxiliary, MCC, Christian Women’s and numerous other activities. She spent time with God and desired that her entire family knew God. Family was important to her and she was the proud mother of four children: CleoBeth (Friesen), LuWanda (Schroeder), Marwood, and Robin (Holcombe).
