Condolences for Caroline Smith McNamara

Matthew, Deborah and families, I have known Caroline (and Steve) for many, many years at first as a designer to renovate the cabin and then as friends. Every time they would visit Hendersonville from Maryland, we would get together for lunch to catch up. When Caroline moved to Hendersonville permanently, we had the opportunity to reconnect on a more regular basis. However, the pandemic intervened. I am so very sad to hear of her passing. She was always uplifting and joyful and always interested in others. I will miss her immensely. I hope her memories will sustain you in this tough time.

I am so sorry to hear about Caroline's passing. Although I did not know her long, she was a valued attender at our Carolina Village Quaker worship group. Sending condolences and Light to all the family.

This picture is exactly how I shall always remember Caroline; full of life and excited to do everything. She and I shared some very nice moments and I was so looking forward to her being in the cabin this summer. Caroline was the heart and soul of our little group on Evans Road and will be missed terribly. I am very sad to lose Caroline, as I am sure everyone is.

I knew Caroline only during her last four years, as a neighbor just down Evans Road from her beloved family cabin. Such a lovely and friendly lady, dealing with life's challenges gracefully. It was my pleasure to help her out once in a while with this or that in the neighborhood. I would plow open her driveway after a winter storm or cut up a tree that had fallen across it, even if she were not there because she was a jewel in our midst who inspired the best in us.
