On the evening of April 8, 2022, after a brief illness, at the age of 87, God called on our mother. While our hearts were broken when she suddenly left us, we found comfort in the wonderful memories of the lessons she gave, the life she shared, and the love she showed.
Mom was born and raised in Coniston, married John Herman (predeceased 1998). Their lives were filled with many wonderful times with family, good friends, and loved ones always around. Mom especially enjoyed spending time with dad and our families camping and fishing for pickerel in Sturgeon Falls. It was our family gathering place for many years. Our children and grandchildren always enjoyed visiting their Baba. She always had a story to share and something special for them.
Mom had a successful 40-year career at the CIBC and retired in 1998. In her retirement, she loved to help others and was recognized many times for outstanding services as a volunteer in both the Coniston and Sudbury communities. In 2006, she married Gregory Beaton (predeceased in 2008). They enjoyed a few wonderful years of companionship, traveling and attending many senior events.
Mom was proud to be a founding member of the Coniston Seniors & Golden Age Club, where she served as President for 20 years. She was also a 50-year member of the St. Paul's Catholic Women's League.
We cherish the memories shared with our mother, and though we can no longer have her in our lives, she will always be in our hearts.
We thank the EMS teams and Health Sciences North emergency doctors, staff and volunteers for their compassionate care of our mother during her brief stay.
Caroline is survived by, and will be sadly missed by her daughters Janet, Cindy and Margaret, son-in-law William, 7 grandchildren, 12 great-grandchildren, nephews, nieces, cousins, their families and friends.
Funeral and interment services will be private. As an expression of sympathy memorial contributions may be sent to Maison McCulloch Hospice, 1028 South Bay Road, Sudbury, Ontario. https://maisonsudburyhospice.org/donate/
