Carol Jean Hornberger, 77, lifelong Berthold resident, died Monday, October 25, 2021, in peace at Trinity Hospital.

Carol J. Flaten was born February 16, 1944, in Minot, ND to Olaf E. and Elenore I. (Thingelstad) Flaten. She was raised and educated in Berthold, graduating with the Berthold High School Class of 1962.

Carol was united in marriage to Wayne Hornberger on September 22, 1963, in Berthold. They made their lifelong home in Berthold, where she built her legacy as a wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother.

Carol worked in the offices of WW Wallworks and Neshem Peterson Construction as a bookkeeper for many years and in addition to her most important job as a mother, working her later years in sales for Home of Economy in Minot until her retirement.

Carol was a member of Zion Lutheran Church, Berthold, and Women of the Moose, Mandan Chapter #1374. Carol was at her best in the kitchen keeping family and friends well fed. She baked the best chocolate chip cookies, and her brownies filled many tummies, young and old. Her hands kept busy knitting by making countless dish cloths given as gifts to family and friends. Carol was so proud of her family and will be missed most by all who were blessed to share in her life.
