Caroline Pauline Boltz

"Blessed are the Meek . . . . . " Matthew 5:5
Caroline Pauline Boltz went to eternal rest on April 1, 2022. Her first bout with lung cancer was in 2008, so the past fourteen years have been dearly loved and appreciated by her family as "bonus years".
Caroline was born fifth of seven children to Harvey and Helen Frappier on the family farm in Fryburg, ND on February 14, 1935. Caroline grew up in western North Dakota in the Medora area. With no High School in Fryburg, she stayed with her grandfather, August Urban, during High School years and graduated in Belfield, ND. She married Robert C. (Bob) Boltz in 1953 and traveled with him while he worked on a Stanolind Oil seismograph crew for 5 years through ND, CO, and WY, eventually stopping in Worland, Wy for ten years. Then they moved on to Ten Sleep, WY for 15 years. Caroline and Bob had four children spanning 20 years: Sandy and Birdie being the eldest, with Randy and John being the youngest. Caroline moved to Sandpoint, ID to spend time with her mother and siblings in the ID-WA area and worked as a CNA. She then returned to WY 14 years later where Lovell became home for her final 24 years.
Caroline was a beautiful seamstress, with Sandy and Birdie remembering her making lots of school dresses. She was also a crocheter making many lovely doilies and afghans. Later years found her quilting at the North Big Horn Senior Center among many wonderful friends. She loved playing cards with her Pinochle Club.
Caroline's faith kept her at peace, and her trips to Club Dauntless kept her strong!
Caroline was preceded in death by one son, John; and by one grandson, Steven.
Surviving her are: one sister Lucille Kibler, children: Sandy (Randy) Armstrong, Birdie (Craig) Nerone, Randy (Alicia) Boltz. Also surviving her are 6 grandchildren: Hannah Nerone, Riley and McKenzie Boltz, Madisyn (Caleb) Boltz, Lexie and Ella Boltz.
There will only be a graveside service at the Ten Sleep Cemetery, as per her request, at a later date. Haskell Funeral Home, Lovell, is in charge of arrangements. Donations can be made to St. Joseph's Catholic Church, Lovell, WY.
