Caroline Ann Chalmers was born on March 31, 1946 in Anacortes, Washington.  Caroline was a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother.  She enjoyed camping, traveling, and spending time with family and friends.  Caroline was known for her excellent pumpkin cookies and apple pie that filled the hearts, and stomachs of many.  Caroline fought a long and hard battle with cancer, but maintained a positive outlook on life, and was an inspiration to every one.  Caroline passed away on May 31, 2013 at the family home, and will be greatly missed by all.  In this time of sadness, and loss we honor Caroline’s memory and her love for life. 

Caroline preferred that a celebration of life open house be hosted at the longtime family home in Kirkland.  The open house will be held on Saturday June 8, at 14331 104th Ave N.E. Kirkland from 10:00am-05:00pm.

    You will be sorely missed by friends and family. You fought a long hard battle, and now it’s time to rest without any pain or suffering. Although we all wanted you to be here forever, that was for us. You deserve the peace, you now have. You gave of yourself, even at your darkest times. You will be remembered as a kind, caring and warm person who always did her best to help others. Rest in peace, Caroline.

    Any time I saw you, you were smiling and happy. You fixed my coat for me when I didn’t think I could do it right. Peace, Prayers and Blessings to all the family.

    Caroline, every time we see the cows with the white ring around their middle. I will be thinking of you calling them, Oreo Cookie Cows. We had so many good times together. Know that God needed you more then we did. You will missed by so many. You always had a smile on your face,& that will be missed. Remember when you & I went for a walk around the block at our place? We saw Lemons on a tree and the Lady said we could have all we wanted? Went back to the house, got bags and filled them. Then we made a fresh Lemon Pie. what fun.
    We love you and miss you. God bless
    Dee and Lucy.

    Caroline will be missed by all. She was such a great person and fun to hang around the camp fire with. Now who is going to help me wrap all of those potatoes and make the last day camping soup? Thank you for all of the fun times that we had together. Lots of Love, Merf

    To my, Longtime Friend, Great Neighbor, and Longtime Work Buddy,
    We have many great memories that we have shared through the years, there aren’t many people that have this kind of a relationship like we shared for forty-six years. Our children all grew up together we shared a lot of laughs and shared a lot of tears as well. She often said to me, your like the “sister” I never had. We also sat next to each other at work, I retired at thirty-two years and she retired at thirty-eight years at United Control/ Sundstrand/Honeywell, we made work fun to go to, and don’t know what I would have done without her. This last couple of years she even found time to be a nurse to me after I had surgery, what an amazing friend she was and so giving of her time, and the best neighbor ever.
    I am going to miss you so much Caroline, but I know you are at peace and have no discomfort anymore.
    Love you, Barbara May.

  • Terry says:

    Mom, I miss your good morning texts. I know today your looking down at me saying Happy Birthday Ter with all your heart. I miss and love you.

  • Marsha Anderson says:

    Caroline, I am so glad I got to know you this last year. Our time together was much too short but you left a very big impression on me for so short a time.
    It takes a very special kind of person to make another human being feel so loved and accepted but that is what you did.I want you to know that your love, your kindness, and your strength when facing such tough and painful health challenges will remain in my heart forever and will inspire me on my own journeys. You are going to be so missed by so many.
    Love, Marsha

    Reading the comments and what particularly hit me was Caroline was always positive and smiling – my memories of her also. She was a special individual and I shall miss our emails. I going to try and take away what she would want me to be and do – remain positive and keep moving forward. Both Marie and I are thinking of you all. Take care. Brenda

    The biggest supporter of my life through the day I was born to the day to the day she passed.

    Thank you Grandma for being the most amazing woman and influence in my life. You always unconditionally loved me and gave me the best advice a granddaughter could ask for. I will miss you more than you will ever know and I have the greatest memories with you! Rest in peace, I can’t wait until the day that we meet again. I love you Grandma, you were my rock, and I will never forget your memory or the special place you held in our family. I love you!

    All of the memories that I have shared with Caroline while out hunting and camping. Never going to be the same. I know you are in a better place now. You fought the long and hard fight. Such a strong woman. I will always cherish the moments that we had. Rest in Peace. You will be watching over us now. Love you Caroline. There will always be a seat for you around the campfire.

    I am so glad for the time we had together when I visited last summer. It will be one of many memories I have of you. You were so incredibly kind to my grandson. I will hold the love you showed him in my heart forever. My favorite memory is us having lunch together, with our kids and your mom, when we were young, in Everett.

  • Kelly Chalmers says:

    Aunt Caroline, there are not enough words to express how much you will be missed. You leave an amazing legacy of love and family. I have so many wonderful memories. You were such a kind, caring and loving person. I have never known someone so strong and determined. You taught me so many things, thank you. We shared so many talks, tears and laughter. Everytime I think of you in the back of the car, the keyboard clicking away as you were texting like a teenager it brings a joy to my heart. And then there is the “Easy” button. Rich would tease you about your “Easy” button, you’d pop in your trailer for 5 minutes and come out with a homemade pie, camping, in the middle of the woods, you were so amazing at everything. I will always love you. Until we meet again….XOXOXOXO

  • Terry says:
