Wartburg leader donates clothes after losing her battle with cancer

WAVERLY (KWWL) -

One last wish. An eastern Iowa woman knew she was losing her battle to cancer.

So, she made a final wish to help her students as they prepare to graduate college.

Cindy Carlson worked at Wartburg college for 17 years and was the administrative assistant to the school's president.

She was a leader in the community and known for always dressing professionally. 

Carlson knew she was losing her battle with cancer, so she started thinking about those she cared for. 

That's when Carlson decided to donate her wardrobe to all the Wartburg Senior students. 

Carlson's clothes range from sizes 8 to 12. Students were able to look through and pick out clothes from her wardrobe last week. Today is they will be available to students. Carlson's clothes are located in the Wartburg chapel. 

Carlson passed away last month. She was 57.
