Carla Koistinen, 58, of Langdon, ND, passed away March 15, 2023, in Langdon.
Carla Kaye Shuley was born January 2, 1965, in Langdon, ND, to John and Shirley (Giles) Shuley. She grew up and attended school in Langdon, graduating in 1983. After graduating, she moved to Hawaii for a few years before returning to North Dakota. She lived in Devils Lake for a short time and attended Lake Region College before moving back to Langdon. Carla worked at Maple Manor Care Center, At the Hop, and Gutters but is probably remembered the most from working at Dairy Queen for many, many years. Currently, she was the office manager at Farmers Union in Lawton, ND. Carla loved her plants and cheering on the Green Bay Packers. She looked forward to visiting with family at Devils Lake in the summer and baking with her sisters, Jeannie and Char. Carla was a very social person and loved going out with friends for a pop or coffee. She was through the moon when she found out she was going to be a grandma as her family was everything to her. She was friend to many and will be dearly missed.
Surviving Carla are her husband, Blake Koistinen, of Langdon; children: Quentin (Kristina) Bradley of Fargo, ND, Nicholas William Bradley of Langdon, Kaydee Marie Koistinen of Mayville/Langdon; grandchildren: Quentin Bradley III and soon-to-be-born baby Bradley; siblings: Connie (Tim) Lorenz, Allen (Linda) Shuley, Jeannie (Dennis) Gendreau, Don (Susan) Shuley; brother-in-law Rick Christianson; and many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents, sister Charlene Christianson, in-laws Vera and Pap Koistinen, and sister-in-law Anne White.
