Caroline Catherine

Our family lost an incredible person this week.
Our Mom passed away.   
we all echo the words of my niece...

"...all i keep thinking is that (as ridiculous as it sounds) I never imagined she'd pass. It's almost like a superhero passed away."
Beloved wife of the late Frank Walter. Loving mother of Carol, Frank and his wife Arlene, and Lorraine and her husband John. Grandmother of Christine, Thomas, Jonathan, Erin, Eva, Jill, Jamie, Andrew, Catherine, Toni, Alexander, Abbey and Suzanne. Great-Grandmother of Jared, Alexis, Julianna, Ryan, Keri, Maxwell, Noah, Brenna, Harrison, Silas, Shaela, Olivia, Caleb, Cambrie and Vivienne. Also survived by her sisters, Margaret and Rose. Predeceased by her brothers, Howard, William, Joseph, Charles, George, Raymond, Harry and sister Catherine.
 Mommy (Granny) Words
(I asked family and friends for a word or two that they would use to describe her) 
Affectionate, legendary
Affectionate thoughtful 
The best tooth-brusher on the planet
Affectionate – thoughtful.  Filled the world with tape dispensers!
Thoughtful…OCD (I mean that lovingly!!! Especially since I am too.
Creative story-teller
Giving, Spunky
Generous & entertaining
She could outfit an army with linens
Fun-loving and generous
Big-heart, attentive to details
Hard-worker and strong
Perfection in sewing, crocheting, knitting… oh, and cleaning
Didn’t like to cook but loved to eat
Loving and supportive
Like an M&M ~ hard outer shell with a smooth soft center
Mindfulness and Tenacity.   Her thoughtfulness and her resolve are the most vivid traits that I think of when I remember Granny
 Strong and spirited.
Making filled turnover Christmas cookies is what first comes to mind
A lot of person in a small body
A character
Ornery, Piece-of-work and "Jell-O" (she made and gave Jell-O often)

Some photos of Mommy and me.
One of my favorite photos

 We were together for my birthday.
She had a great time and looked terrific.
The last time I saw my mom

We brought home her Bible and the above card was inside with these precious words in her own handwriting.
The above paper was in the pouch on the front of her Bible.
Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints.
Psalm 116:15
