After three months in hospital, Caroline Hintze slipped away in her sleep on February 11, 2023.
Caroline (née Wilson) was born November 4, 1939 in Fort William, now Thunder Bay, Ontario. She and her twin sister, Pauline were the youngest of seven siblings, George, Hazel, Thomas, Beatrice (Bunny) and Grimes. Caroline was trained as an x-ray technician and worked in Massachusetts, USA and Hamilton, Ontario. Caroline came home to Thunder Bay where she met Elmer in the summer of 1965. Elmer and Caroline were married October 15, 1966 in Fort William. The two of them moved to Elrose to the Hintze family farm in 1968. Caroline was active in curling, golfing, working the rink kitchen, Eastern Star, the Elrose Health Care Auxiliary and the United Church. Later on, she enjoyed weekly bowling in Rosetown. She loved getting together with “the girls” in her coffee group.
