Caroline showed her love for all by “cooking up a storm” and feeding all who visited her home.

She had a green thumb and loved plants and flowers. She lived on a farm in Milford for 40 years and had a special place in her heart for animals.

She loved polka music and played the accordion in a polka band in her younger years. Caroline’s life was filled with the love of family, God, laughter and hard work. She will be greatly missed and always remembered for her famous phrase, “I love you a whole bushel!”
