She volunteered for over 30 years at Baptist East Hospital Day Care Center and Baptist East Hospital Gift Shop and in various roles for the Kentucky Center for the Arts for 35 years.
Caroline was an avid traveler and loved University of Louisville basketball, but, most of all she treasured her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. She was affectionately referred to as “Maw Maw” and “Shorty” by her family. Her kind heart and generous spirit will be remembered by all those who knew her.
Caroline is survived by her children, Scott Wesley (Ruth) of Louisville, Todd Wesley (Martha) of Louisville, and Deanna Wesley Shannon (Michael) of Greensboro, North Carolina.
