Caroline worked for the credit unions in both Rossland and Trail for 15 years. She was an active member of the community who was kind, thoughtful and caring. She had a gift for being able to talk to anyone about anything and loved to meet new people. She enjoyed gardening, baking, arts and crafts, skiing, hiking, taking long leisurely walks, travelling and learning new things through the internet and home and garden shows. Raising her children to become successful adults was very important to her, and she was proud to watch them grow.
