Today Caroline's email bounced and so I searched her name and found this Obituary! My mother is a MacLachlan and I live in Ottawa and I am involved in the Lochaber Bay Cemetery where Caroline's grandparents are buried. If this message finds a relative, please keep intouch .. I've updated our database/family tree.

A vivid memory captured in a photo taken ten years ago still hangs in our workroom of our two year old grandson Jack sitting on top of a library desk while the author Caroline Stutson signed his PRAIRIE PRIMER A to Z. Jack loved all her wonderful books. Caroline and I were fishing widows while her husband Al and my husband Lee were away on so many past Canadian fishing trips. I'll always remember Caroline Stutson as one of the sweetest and loviest people God ever put on this earth.

I remember her as such a sweet, gentle lady. She was my daughter's kindergarten teacher at Ames Elementary in Littleton in 1983.

Caroline was a brilliant fellow librarian at Bemis Public Library in Littleton, CO for many years in the mid-1990s. She is much-loved by my daughters as she signed each copy of her books that we purchased. In 2010-2011 she visited my fourth grade class in Denver and shared her writing process and her writing inspiration with the students. The students' written reflections about her visit were beautiful. She told the students that her pets were inspiration when she'd sit down to write. In a wonderful way, she was so real, down to earth and approachable that kids reflected, "I just didn't know where to start with writing and now I do. I love to write now that we heard you speak." They had new confidence and a belief that yes, they were all writers, following Caroline's visit. She has been such a precious gift to so many children all of her life. My sympathy goes out to the family and to the students who won't see her showing up to read at their school in the fall.
