She is survived by children, grandchildren, and a bigger flock both chosen and God-granted. Special gratitude is directed toward her cousin Sherry Bell for her time, support, company, and memories with and of Caroline over the years.
Family of Caroline’s will be in contact with loved ones regarding memorial plans to follow. They ask that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to Webster Pond.
