It is with deepest sympathies and great sadness that our family learned of the passing of Caroline. The family of Caroline's brother, William, always loved our summer vacation road trips from Oklahoma to Pennsylvania to visit with Caroline & her family. We especially enjoyed & will always remember our visits to Reading for our fun family reunions that we would have with Caroline & the family. We will always remember those great memories & our hearts and prayers are with the family during this time of loss.
From the OK/TX Moore family: Rosalie (sister-in-law), nieces Debbie & Pamela, and nephew Bill.
