Nurse at Sanford Hospital Retires After Six Decades of Dedicated Service

Carol Wieneke, a beloved friend to everyone at Sanford Health, is retiring after 60 years of working as an LPN at Sanford Luverne. Throughout her six decades at the facility, she has learned to find joy in the simple moments and keep choosing to see the joy in her work. She believes that if people don’t enjoy their work, then they won’t do good work.

Carol has been known for caring for patients and staff, and her colleague of 13 years, Cheryl Groen, spoke highly of her character. Groen emphasized how much Carol actually cares about the patients and her fellow staff members and how she treated every person as a family member. Even though it’s not goodbye forever, Groen knows that Carol will always be her friend forever and Carol will stop by to both volunteer at the hospital and just check in with everyone from time to time.

Carol’s reputation of keeping her word is something Groen admires and will keep her in high regard as a close friend.
