Audino, Caroline (Keil) ALBANY Caroline Keil Audino, 80, passed away on December 4, 2012 after a long illness. Born on October 4, 1932, in Albany, she is the daughter of the late John Keil and Anna Meister. She was a graduate of the former Vincentian Institute. Caroline was employed at the New York Telephone Company in Albany and at St. Anthony On-the-Hudson Seminary in Rensselaer. She was the seminary's registrar. Caroline was a communicant at St. Francis de Sales Church in West Albany and later in Loudonville. Caroline was predeceased by her infant son, Peter and her brother, John Keil. She is survived by her husband of 56 years, Michael Anthony Audino. Caroline is also survived by her son, Michael (Patricia); three grandchildren, Jamie, Nicholas, and Katherine; and a great-grand-daughter, Isabella. She is also survived by a sister Rosemarie Steff; and a brother Joseph Keil; and numerous nieces and nephews. Caroline was a proud and dedicated homemaker. The southern coast of Maine, most notably Kennebunkport, held a special place in her heart as she vacationed there from 1968 to the early 2000's. After her husband's retirement in 1992, they took trips abroad to visit England, France, Germany, and Italy. Caroline always loved her time at family gatherings and events and particularly enjoyed sharing in her grandchildren's activities and milestones. Her favorite poem/prayer was "The Gate of The Year" by M. L. Haskins which reads: I said to the man who stood at the gate of the year: "Give me a light that I may tread safely into the unknown." He replied: "Go out into the darkness and put your hand into the Hand of God. That shall be to you better than light and safer than a known way." So I went out into the darkness and I found the Hand of God, and He led me to the breaking of day in the East. Caroline's family wishes to express their sincere gratitude to the doctors and staff at St. Peter's Hospital. Special thanks are extended to Dr. Fisk and his colleagues. The family also wishes to express sincere appreciation for the special care provided by the dedicated staff at The Hospice Inn at St. Peter's Hospital. At the request of the family, there will be no calling hours. The funeral will be private. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to The Community Hospice, 295 Valley View Blvd., Rensselaer, NY 12144.
