Caroline loved spending time with her family and friends. It seemed like she always had a smile on her face and everyone loved her. She loved to see people happy and she loved to laugh. Her philosophy in life was that everything will work out, and if it’s meant to be, it’s meant to be. She would welcome anyone into her home and always made everyone feel welcome there. Year-after-year many people would stop by her house to just say hello. There were a lot of people that considered her to be their second mother.

In her earlier years, she enjoyed spending time with the friends she grew up with called “The Patch Gang”. She enjoyed going roller skating, dancing, and loved wearing the latest fashions. She liked to read fortunes just for fun. In her later years, she loved playing Bingo and playing cards with various friends and family. She especially liked playing Rummy. She loved watching classic TV shows and absolutely loved to eat sweets. Her favorites were pie, cake, hard candy and ice cream cones.

Everyone that met her just adored her. She loved going for rides to Coggshall Park and scratching scratch tickets at Whalom Lake and going out for ice cream. She liked to watch the squirrels and birds from her window and enjoyed feeding them peanuts and birdseed.

Her personality lit-up a room. She made everyone laugh, even though she wasn’t always trying to be funny. Not only was she beautiful, she also had a beautiful soul and avery special way about her. She lived a great life surrounded by so many people that loved and cared for her. Her faith was very important to her, as she held her rosary beads every night and would pray to our Blessed Mother.
