Caroline Krickhahn Obituary

Bearsville-

Caroline Krickhahn, 78, a beacon of warmth and love, died at HealthAlliance Hospital in Kingston on July 8, 2024. Born on June 21, 1946, in Prattsville, she was the cherished daughter of the late Walter and Marion Lawyer Baughman Sr. Caroline's life was a testament to her resilience and the deep bonds of family.

A life-long resident of the Catskill Mountains, Caroline's spirit was as enduring as the peaks that cradled her hometown. Her work history included tending bar at the Phoenicia Hotel and the Sportsman, where she was known for her quick wit and the ability to make anyone feel at home. Caroline's true vocation, however, was being the matriarch of her family. She hosted countless gatherings, her home always filled with laughter, conversation, and the irresistible aroma of her famous chicken recipes.

Caroline's interests were as varied as they were passionate. She was a proud member of the Ridge Runner's I.O.O.B. Club. Her gardens, both flower and vegetable, were a testament to her nurturing nature, each bloom and harvest shared generously with friends and family. Caroline's love for crossword puzzles and card games revealed her sharp mind and competitive spirit, while her feline friends enjoyed her gentle touch and unwavering affection.

Above all, Caroline was known for her grand, loving hugs. They were a symbol of her very essence—caring, protective, and all-encompassing. Her grandchildren, Brianna Boland, Brady (Bri) Jones, and Alex Loiacono, will carry the memory of their grandmother's embrace as a reminder of her unconditional love and the tenderness with which she approached every aspect of her life.


Surviving are her twin daughters: Darlene (Brett) Baumann of West Shokan and Charlene (Doug) Jones of Shandaken.  Her stepchildren: Diana (John) Loiacono, Michael (Kimberley) Krickhahn, and Steven (Meg) Krickhahn. Caroline's siblings, Mary Lane and Jake Baughman, along with her late brother Walter Baughman Jr., completed the circle of family that defined much of her life.  She was predeceased by her husbands Arnold Every and Hans Krickhahn , as well as her daughter Maureen Lane Boland. Caroline Krickhahn's legacy is one of love, laughter, and the simple joys of life. She will be deeply missed by all who had the privilege of knowing her, yet her spirit will continue to inspire those she leaves behind. 

 

A Service to Celebrate the Life of Caroline will be held on Saturday July 13th at 11am at the E. B. Gormley Funeral Home 87 Main St. Phoenicia with the Rev. Ralph Merante as celebrant.  Burial at the Hudler Cemetery Rt. 28 Mt. Tremper.  Friends will be received on Saturday morning prior to the service from 9am to 11am at the Gormley Funeral Home.  The family suggests memorial contributions may be made to the Woodstock Fire Department or the Ulster County SPCA.  You may share a special memory, condolence, or photo with the family on Caroline's Tribute Wall at www.gormleyfuneralhome.com
