For several years, Caroline was my workout partner at Survival Fitness. Even though she was 17 years my senior, she was always faster, stronger and tougher than me and she never gave up...not even when she dislocated her shoulder! Caroline was patient, kind and encouraging and she sweat like a lady. I will always love Caroline and carry her memory in my heart. So heart breaking to have her gone too soon.

‘Gracious’ is one of my favorite words and a perfect word for describing Caroline. I knew Caroline to be full of kindness and consideration for others. She leaves as her legacy a wonderful family who will miss her greatly.
