She was born on September 14, 1913, the sixth child of Samuel and Lula Evelyn (Wallace) Holler in Stoy, Illinois. On December 25, 1930, Caroline married Ezra Harmon. Ezra and Caroline had two sons, Jerry and Jack, who survive. As a family, they worked together to build their business, known at that time as Harmon’s Rexall Drug Store, in Oblong, Illinois. Caroline had many fond memories of those years and the wonderful people who worked with them in the store.

A member of The First Christian Church of Oblong since 1930, Caroline was very active as a Sunday school teacher, the ladies Priscilla Circle and member of various church groups.

Caroline’s faith in Jesus Christ, her love for God the Father, as well as her trust in the Holy Spirit were a quiet inspiration to many. For those who knew and loved her, the knowledge that she has left us for a place where there is no sorrow, no pain and no suffering is the reason for celebration and joy.
