CLARINE, Beverly C. “Carolyn” (Age 89) –

Carolyn passed away October 22, 2020 at her home in Reardan, Washington. Carolyn was born on October 9, 1931 in Chicago, Illinois to Ivan and Carmen Harry. The family moved to Inglewood, California where Carolyn grew up. She met and married Vern Clarine in 1951. They raised their young family in Cathlamet and Naselle, Washington before moving to Wenatchee, Washington in 1978 to maintain close family ties with their son, Greg. Following Vern’s death in 1990, her later diagnosis of Alzheimer’s and declining health, Carolyn moved to Las Vegas in 2015, where she was cared for by her daughter Lucinda and grandson Geoffrey. She relocated a last time to Reardan, Washington in 2019 to be closer to her extended family. Carolyn was a publicly recognized community volunteer throughout her life, actively supporting the VFW, Grange, Habitat for Humanity and NAMI (National Alliance for Mental Health). She could also be found volunteering at the polls during elections. Having briefly been in foster care for part of her childhood, Carolyn also became a foster parent to three children during the early years of her marriage to Vern. She was a fantastic cook, a dedicated mother and homemaker, as well as a resilient personality with a loving heart and persistent humor. Carolyn is survived by her four children Ronald G. “Greg” Clarine; Susan Thornsberry; Lucinda Krumkop and Carla Gamble along with 10 grandchildren, 23 great grandchildren and 23 great-great grandchildren; as well as her brother Carter Harry. She is preceded in death by her husband, Vern, and a brother, Clifford Brown. A family memorial will be held at a later date. Memorials may be made to your local Habitat for Humanity. Fond memories and expressions of sympathy may be shared at www.strate-funeral.com for the Clarine family. STRATE FUNERAL HOME, DAVENPORT, WA is caring for the family.

Losing a loved one is very hard but losing your mom is harder. My thoughts and prayers are with you all in this time of loss.
I hadn’t seen Aunt Caroline since the early 90’s when mom and I took a trip to Wenatchee. It was awesome seeing her and the fam. Brought back many memories of our visits when I was younger. My fondest memory of her though was her unique laugh and her huge smile. Love you aunty. Till we meet again You will be missed ❤️

God puts people in my life for different reasons, they provide memory snapshots that puts me in a happy place when I look back at them. Carolyn provided some that ended up in the scrapbook, I only knew her a short period of time in the grand scheme, but her large personality and great stories of her life are the things I will always remember. I loved talking with her when I visited, at times joking around with her, which prompted responses such as "I was full of prunes" or she would call me "Silly Willy" . A few days prior to her passing she told me she wanted to go home, She was lucid and I told her she was, she said "No, I want to go home" - Carolyn You Are Now Home!!! I will miss you but you are out of pain and happy in Heaven, I know that - A part of you will always be with me and when I look back it will always put a smile on my face and probably a laugh. See you on the other side!!

I am so thankful for the things mom modeled to me growing up. She worked hard taking care of our family. When she wasn’t canning, baking massive batches of bread or keeping an eye on us kids as we picked berries, hauled firewood or processed game, she helped others, she spoke up against things she thought were wrong and had no fear in facing those wrongs head-on and man was she the best person to have in your corner, or sometimes not depending! Thankful for you mom.

Mom had some sayings that turned into great life lessons! When things were hard, I remember her saying, what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. That was her whole attitude, perseverance. She persevered no matter the obstacles and she taught us to do the same. Thank you mom.

Up until the very end she had a childlike love for our little dogs, calling them her "babies." Here she loves on Milton shortly after his addition to the family.

The last two years involved a series of new and subtly changing routines to accommodate her declining faculties and motor skills. Here she enjoys a favorite pastime, dinner in her chair accompanied by some kind of mystery or crime drama.

May, 1990 - shortly before Dad's passing. They were two tough nuts - married for almost 40 years!

Mom was always a sucker for a stray - whether that was orphaned animals Dad brought home from the woods or furry additions we surprised her with.
