Carol Schabot


December 30, 1943 - November 1, 2021


Carol Schabot, 77, of Yankton, SD formerly of Mitchell, died Monday, November 1, 2021, at Sister James Care Center in Yankton. Funeral services will be at 11:30 AM Thursday, November 4, at St. John Catholic Church in Plankinton. Burial will be at Mizpah Cemetery in Plankinton. Arrangements by Bittner Funeral Chapel.

Carol Ann Schabot was born near Stickney on December 30th, 1943 and was the 3rd of 8 children born to John and Dorothy Schroeder.

Carol and Donald Schabot were married on October 13th, 1961, and had two daughters, Deidre and Doralea, and later adopted Jocinda. They were married for 58 years before Don died in March 2020.

Carol spent her entire life taking care of other people. Besides her own children, she took in any child that needed someone, whether just a few hours or lifelong surrogate parents. She never said no to someone in need. She had many creative talents, sewing, leatherworking, quilting, and knitting among them. Carol took great joy in making highly unusual things like western shirts with one short sleeve and one long, upside-down pockets etc., and her knitting, which could be described as “Picasso knitting.” She loved reusing scraps of other things to make new, such as her many scrap quilts which have kept people warm for years. Her devotion to the Catholic Church from birth was a driving factor for her in everything she did.

Carol’s legacy is that she did a lot with very little, and many lives were the better for it.

Carol’s death lets her rejoin her husband, Donald, a brother, Bill, and many other important people in her life.

She leaves behind as she would say “a whole herd” of people who will miss her very much.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests a Catholic Mass said in Carol’s honor.

Carol and Don ran the Lake Mitchell campground when I was employed by the City of Mitchell. Carol was a hard worker. May you find peace in God’s hands.

DeeDee, Dory and families. Sending my condolences to you all. Being neighborhood friends I have many great memories of your mom while at your home. She always had a smile and time to listen. I remember her project room and how she loved that. Hugs

We send our Sympathy to DeeDee & Doralea & family. May all the Memories of life with your mom bring you Peace & Comfort. I enjoyed reading her obituary about her unusual western shirts& scraps with knitting.

The loss of a mother can never be replaced, but the love of a mother can never be lost
