Within a year she was swept off her feet by the love of her life and she married Wayne Kalthoff on August 2, 1967 at Willmont. They then moved to the farm near Fulda where they began their farming career. Caroline was very active in the daily operations of the farm working side by side with Wayne. Together they were blessed with three children. Caroline’s duties as domestic engineer were taken seriously and she provided a warm, loving and welcoming home to her family and friends. She was a very hard worker who kept her large vegetable and flower gardens meticulously manicured. She became a Weekender Home Party Sales Rep for many years. In 1992 they moved to Humboldt where she was kept busy with her “moms” running them to appointments, etc. Caroline entered the Office Education Program and graduated in 1999.

Her family always praised her for her ability to bake the best sweet treats. They could never figure out how she could be such a great baker and not be able to eat any of her creations. Caroline was a very spiritual lady who was private and yet very outgoing and social and loved a good laugh. She would surprise many with an unexpected joke or comment that would crack everyone up. Caroline would join Wayne regularly on a road trip to different parts of Canada and the USA where she would assist him with the farm progress shows or just enjoy some quiet time resting and her trip usually included a good day or two of shopping.

Caroline was always very proud of her family and their accomplishments and loved them very much. Caroline was the captain of her team of sisters - enjoying shopping sprees or just talking on the phone and will always have a strong bond with them.
