Obituary for Barbara Jean Carver

Barbara Jean (Paul) Carver

Barbara Carver of Conroe, TX was born on March 3, 1945 to Vincent and Viola Paul
in Benson, MN. and passed away suddenly at home on November 13, 2018 at the
age of 73.

She grew up in Benson, MN and graduated from high school there. She also lived in
Long Prairie, MN, Longmont, CO, Las Vegas, NV, Willmar, MN and lastly, in Conroe,
TX since 2007. She attended business college in Minneapolis and worked as an
administrative assistant for several companies in Longmont and Las Vegas. She also
did security for a casino in Las Vegas and Kroger Grocery in Conroe, TX. Her love of
music led her to a ukelele band named Happy Strings from First Baptist Church of
Conroe, TX. The group is about 30 fun loving retired persons that perform weekly in
care facilities in the area. She was invited to sing solos of many favorite hymns and
secular songs. She often broke into song while working around the house or visiting
with family. It lifted her burdens of the day. Music was always part of her life from
singing duets with her father and trios with her sisters in high school to singing
karaoke every chance she found along the way and most recently with the Happy
Strings family. The last 8 years of being in the band were very healing to her spirit.
A special thank you to the community of people that were from her church that
surrounded her with encouragement and love. It meant more to her family then
those people will ever know.

She was preceded in death by her father, Vincent Paul, her brother, Fredrick Paul
and her brother-in law, Larry Tilleskjor.

She is survived by her 2 sons, Timothy Hokanson of Savage, MN and Jeffrey (Tracy)
Hokanson of Eric, PA. and 3 grandchildren, Nathaniel, Ezekiah and Mabel Hokanson.
Also surviving are her mother, Viola and her sisters: Karen(Robert) Peterson and
Marjorie Tilleskjor both of Conroe, TX. Other relatives include: 9 nieces and
nephews, Toni Hadland, Bobby Peterson and Merridee (Brian) Rodel all of Conroe,
TX. Stephanie Laliberte of Shakopee, MN, Richelle (Eric) Fraser of Roberts, WI,
Jaclyn (Chris) Steep of Hudson, WI, Janna (Don) Witt of Wyndmere, ND, Alicia Paul
and Jon (Amy) Paul of Fargo, ND.

No formal service will be held locally. A small gathering of her church community
will be held on November 27, 10:30am in fellowship Hall at First Baptist Church. A
graveside service will be held next summer, 2019, in Benson, MN at the cemetery.
