Caroline had a serious love and devotion for God, family and country. She had a keen sense of what to and when. She was a very social person who was happiest when helping others and volunteered her time to help many organizations. She had a warm smile that she shared freely and was often a source of infectious laughter when gathered with those she was close too. Her hobbies included sewing, arts and crafts, and helping others.
