CAROLE LYNN (LUBOVE)
On Thursday, November 15, 2012, age 73, of Pittsburgh. Beloved wife of Stanley Klein for 40 years; caring mother to her children, Scott Klein, Seth Lubove, Mindy Klein, and Rebecca Sender; and cherished daughter of Harold and Anne Gollance, of Boston, MA. She had four loving grandchildren, Jesse and Emma Lubove of Los Angeles, CA, and Jessica and Matthew Sender of Doylestown, PA. Carole was a kind, gentle, and caring soul, and will be held forever in the hearts of a wide circle of family, friends, students, and colleagues. Born in Boston, MA, Carole lived in New York City and Squirrel Hill, Pittsburgh. She attended Hunter College, and was an active artist, teacher, and business woman throughout her life. Carole traveled throughout the world, and collected friends everywhere she went. Among her many accomplishments, Carole was a fiber arts instructor at the Ivy School of the Arts and Lambert House, as well as many workshops throughout the country. She was a long-time, active member of Fiber 10, the Associated Artists, Weavers Guild, and Craftsmans Guild of Pittsburgh. During her tenure as President of the Craftsmans Guild, Carole took a lead role in establishing the annual "Fair in the Park" as one of Pittsburgh's longest-standing and most successful community events. Along with her husband, she was co-founder of Ten Continents, an import store in Squirrel Hill, and Rainbow Mills Yarn Company, an internationally recognized boutique enterprise specializing in hand-spun, hand-dyed, and space-dyed yarns. As Barbara Cloud wrote in the Pittsburgh Press, "Sweaters are the perfect canvas to show Carole Klein's affair of the heart - dyeing yarns to her own innate color sense." Carole also developed a special and unique brand, "Carole Klein Knits" to showcase her extraordinary sweaters, jackets, scarves, and other wearables. In addition her love of travel, Carole enjoyed all genres of music, visual arts and museums, spending time with her family, and taking care of her pets. All services will be private to the family. Friends are welcome to visit anytime at the family home. Donations in Carole's memory would be welcomed at the Animal Rescue League, www.animalrescue.org.
