Caroline retired from the SC Employment Security Commission. Through the years she was a frequent volunteer; activities included teaching Sunday School and Vacation Bible School, being a room mother, a Girl Scout leader, volunteer grandmother at Murray Lasaine Elementary School, and a docent at Middleton Gardens. She was a member of Delta Delta Delta Sorority, the Charleston Hat Ladies, St. Matthew's Lutheran Church Ladies Circle #4, the Charleston artist guild, and St. James Anglican Church on James Island. She was a frequent contributing author for the Bishop Gadsden Gab. She enjoyed traveling, researching family genealogy and playing cards.

The family would like to thank the Chaplin and Sharpe families, the members of the Memminger Class of 1950 and the staff at Bishop Gadsden for their many years of love and support.
