Virginia L. Caro
Former Kenai resident Virginia L. Caro died Thursday, Feb. 2, 2006, at the Olympic Medical Center in Port Angeles, Wash. She was 77.
Services were held Saturday, Feb. 18, 2006, at Trinity United Methodist Church in Sequim, Wash.
She was born February 5, 1928, in Oakland, Calif., to Arthur Emil Hansin Eide and Laura Matilda (Aaberg) Eide.
She lived in Seattle and many cities throughout Alaska, from Nome to Juneau. She eventually married and settled in Kenai to raise her family. She sang in the choir of the Methodist Church and the Kenai Peninsula Chorale. She also was a charter member of the Peninsula Concert Association and the Peninsula Homemakers club.
In 1972, the family bought a boat and traveled through Canada to Seattle and then to Bainbridge Island were they lived for 11 years. In 1984 Virginia and husband, Luke, moved to Sequim.
She had many interests, including reading, gardening, classical music, swimming, travel and photography.
“She spent many enjoyable hours, taking prize-winning pictures of flowers and outdoor scenes around the area, making afghans and other crocheted items for loved ones and charitable causes. She loved the mountains and beaches of the northwest,” her family said.
Mrs. Caro was preceded in death by her husband, Luke Caro; and one great-grandson.
She is survived by sons, Nick Miller and his friend, DJ McCaslin, both of Kenai, Terry Miller of Anchorage, Andy Caro of Bainbridge Island, Wash.; daughters, Kathi Reynolds of Fairbanks, Merri Gascon of Beaux Bridge, La. and Elizabeth Feller of Everett, Wash.; 10 grandchildren; three great-grandchildren; and one great-great-grandchild.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorial donations may be sent to Trinity United Methodist Church, Building Fund, P.O. Box 3697, Sequim, WA 98382.
Arrangements were made by The Sequim Valley Chapel in Sequim.
