Caryl was born on January 8, 1925 in Beaver Dam, Wisconsin to the late Edwin and Anna (Gerlicher) Volkmann. On April 19, 1947, she was united in marriage with Daniel G. Goetz in Beaver Dam. Caryl worked at Beaver Dam High School in the office for a few years. After raising her children, Caryl went back to work in the cafeteria at St. Peter’s Grade School/UCPS. A kinder more giving heart you will never find; she was very generous. She volunteered countless hours with the Beaver Dam Community Hospital Auxiliary. She enjoyed gardening and loved to share her produce with others. Caryl was happiest in the kitchen and if you were sick or had problems, she would bring food to help soothe you. She was an avid Cubs fan since going to Chicago on her honeymoon. She also enjoyed following the Packers and the Badgers. Caryl was a member of St. Katharine Drexel Parish and had been active with the Catholic Women.

Caryl was preceded in death by her parents; her husband; and three sisters, Dorthea Mueller and Anita Glockner, and Ina Volkmann, in infancy.
