It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Caroline at the age of 91 years. Predeceased by her husband Herb 1999, daughter Judy 2003, sons-in-law Gary 1999, and George 2010. Survived by daughters Elaine and Kathy, 7 grandchilden: Denise, Mike (Marie), Caroline (Don), Zoe (Lloyd), Eva (Richard), Kris (Sheila), Naomi (Dave), 12 Great Grandchildren: Adrian, Bryce, Addison, Camille, Darion, Teren, Logan, Ruby, Devan, Steven, Ryan and Nathan. Caroline was born in Toronto, Ontario. She moved to BC in 1944 and worked along side her Dad, a logging camp cook. She would tell us in later years she was the flunky. It was here that she met Herb and they married in 1945 in Vancouver.They spent many years at Walden Bros. Sawmill on Cracroft Island. She loved the life on the coast and worked hard in the running of the family logging camp along with raising three daughters. She called Campbell River home from 1975. Caroline enjoyed time with family and friends along with her love of books and pastel painting. A special thank you to the wonderful staff at Coastal East Yucalta Lodge, Dr. McFadden and Dr. Walker. A private family burial will take place later this week with a Celebration of Life to be held at a later date.
