A lifetime government employee, she worked for the FAA while it was still the CAA at the large campus on Blue Mound Road. Caroline also served in Washington D.C. for the CAA during the 1950s. Traveling the US and Europe with her traveling Companions, the Cihacek girls, Mary, Phylis and Hermina was a passion for her. The surviving sister Hermina, 105 years old, was with her when she passed away. Caroline’s greatest love was her ever growing family. She was the family matriarch for several decades and loved organizing family gatherings, especially during the Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons. She helped her Mom and Dad create many family traditions that are still observed today; most notably, the annual “Cranberry Crunch” which she took part in until the age of 98 from her wheel chair with a “little” assistance from Rod and Kyle, her great nephews and Greg and Grant, her great, great nephews. Also, the fact that virtually all family Christmas trees are supposed to revolve, is one of her most enduring legacies.

She was loved and will be missed by all.
