Caroline Louise Angland (nee Behrens) was a deeply devoted wife, mother and grandmother. She was a spirited and practical woman who offered herself openly and honestly to everyone she loved and cared for. She will be deeply missed by those of us blessed to have been touched by her presence.
Caro passed away peacefully in her sleep in Alexandria on June 20, 2012 at the age of 89 years 8 months and 28 days. She had been in declining health for several years and was looking forward to meeting her savior. She remained engaging and clear minded until the very end.
Caro was born September 22, 1922 in Graceville. She was baptized into the Christian faith on October 15, 1922 at Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church near Johnson, where she was raised on her parents' farm. In the spring of 1936, she was confirmed into membership of Trinity Church, and there she attended parochial school. In 1940, she graduated from high school at Chokio, where she met her future husband.

They were active members of Peace Lutheran Church in Robbinsdale. On Jack's retirement in 1981 they moved to Miltona with young son Clair and together enjoyed rural living. During this time they were members of Mt. Calvary Lutheran Church. After Jack passed away on October 31, 1989, Caro moved to Alexandria, where she attended Zion Lutheran Church.
