Carole Kay Knight Severin, 80, Charles City

Carole Kay Knight Severin passed away on the evening of September 18, 2021, at the age of 80.

A funeral service for Carole will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Thursday, September 23, 2021 at Hauser Weishaar Funeral Home in Charles City. Burial will follow at Sunnyside Memory Gardens in rural Charles City.

Visitation will be from 10:00 a.m. until the start of the service on Thursday.

Born in New Hampton, Iowa on November 14, 1940, Carole was the 5th child of 11 for Arnold and Irene (Heiserote) Knight. She attended school in New Hampton and had many friends, many of whom were also her siblings.

Carole married the love of her life, Virgil Severin on February 18, 1961. Together they had 4 children but were surrogate parents to many of the friends of their children. They were also instrumental in the operations of their church, the First Christian Church of Christ; with Carole serving right up to the day of the church’s closing. Carole was active in the Boosters Club, and especially the Stoney Point Players. After Virgil’s passing in 2007, Carole continued to stay busy with cards, thrifting and doting on her family.

Carole was preceded in death by her beloved husband, both parents, and 4 brothers. She is survived by her 4 children; Jordon (Holly) Severin, Richard Severin, Carrie (Greg) Martin, and James (Teresa) Severin, 10 grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren. She is also survived by 6 siblings and countless family friends. Each of her children claims to be her favorite, and depending on the day, they may have been right.

In place of flowers, the family would appreciate contributions in her name to The Stoney Point Players.

Hauser Weishaar Funeral Home, (641) 228-2323, 1205 South Main Street, Charles City, Iowa 50616 is in charge of local arrangements. Online condolences may be left on the Tribute Wall for the family at

Chris Berg

Chris was born in Webster City and raised in Charles City. As a young kid, he would always be caught singing along to songs on the radio. He says he's good at karaoke but we think otherwise. ;) In his free time, he enjoys beginning new projects at home and hardly ever finishing them. Chris lives in Charles City with his wife Vicki, daughter Brynlee and son Jaxon.
