Carol Jean Kamine, 82, of Menominee, Mi., passed away Saturday, Feb. 1, 2020, surrounded by family and friends at Menominee Health Services, formerly Atrium.
Born Dec. 19, 1937 to Homer and Ida (Johnson) Hamblen, she graduated from Menominee High School in 1957 and married Herbert Kamine one month later. She worked as the bookkeeper for McClellan's Five and Dime for many years.
She then trained as an EMT and worked at Menominee County Lloyd Hospital. She continued her education to be an LPN and Paramedic and then at age 50, she returned to school to become an RN for BAMC.
She enjoyed sewing, crafts, flower gardening, dancing and loved to travel, but especially time with her family, grandchildren and great-grandchild.
With her husband, she visited 49 of 50 states, Honduras, Sweden, Norway and Denmark. When he retired they wintered in Ocala, Fla. They were always willing to open their home and provided a family for 6 foreign UW Students, several that continue to be a part of her family.
She was a Jehovah's Witnesses and in retirement, she found joy in additional time sharing her hope for the future.
