Carole Irene Durk, 91, passed away on July 16, 2023 at Kootenai hospital in Coeur d’Alene Idaho surrounded by close family. She was born August 16, 1931 to Hazel and Bill Nordyke in Colusa, California and had 1 brother Roy and 2 sisters, Billie and Cyndy. She graduated high school in 1949 and married Frank C. Durk on July 15, 1950. Carole and Frank lived in various California towns eventually settling in Sacramento where they raised their 2 sons,  Mark and Mike. She encouraged her sons to be involved in fishing, baseball and Mira Loma football. In Sacramento Carole enjoyed hosting swim parties with friends and relatives and also playing golf.   Upon retirement they moved to Lake Almanor, California and finally settled in Hayden Lake, Idaho. She became a huge fan of Gonzaga basketball and never missed a game. Frank and Carole joined the Unity church and were regular members.
