Caroline married the love of her life, Richard Thompson on June 22, 2005 which is a family tradition. She had two beautiful daughters, Julia Anne and Catherine Grace and was “Mommy #2” to her nephews, Wyatt and Luke Murdock.
Caroline was an amazing teacher who loved all her students and truly made an impact. She worked, lived and loved the York County Schools though her most important role was being a loving wife and mother. She was a dedicated servant of the Lord and enjoyed teaching Sunday School and VBS. She was a proud member of the Phi Mu Fraternity through CNU. She loved 1975 VW Beetles and classic cars and was a member of the Peninsula Volkswagen Club. Caroline always put others first, her last caring act being donation of her organs.
