Caroline L. Fandrick

Caroline L. Fandrick, age 93 of Monroe, died Sunday, June 17, 2018 at Pleasant View N.H. She was born on November 22, 1924 in Monticello, the daughter of Julius and Lydia (Tschudy) Hartwig. She graduated from Monroe H.S. in 1942 and then received her Nursing Degree from the Evangelical Hospital in Chicago. Caroline married Ferdinand "Frank" Fandrick on July 21, 1951 in Chicago; their marriage united a blended family of three children, and they later had their youngest son together. She worked at the Illinois Masonic Hospital and was also a visiting nurse in Chicago before moving back to the family dairy farm in Clarno in 1960. Caroline was very hardworking. Not only was she a devoted mother and step-mother she also helped on the farm, while continuing her work as a nurse. She worked at Pleasant View Nursing Home for 16 years, and Monroe Clinic Hospital for 5 years before that. She retired in 1988.

In her free time Caroline enjoyed big band and classic country music. She fondly remembered dancing at Turner Hall in Monroe and the Aragon Ballroom in Chicago. As a good Wisconsinite Caroline liked playing and winning at Euchre and watching the Green Bay Packers.

She is survived by her step-daughter, Judith (Tom) Cox of Rockford; granddaughter: Sara (Chad) Anderson; great-grandchildren Danny McGee, Meghan McGee, and Taylor Anderson all of Caledonia, IL; granddaughter, Debbie (Keith) Dennis; great grandchildren: Ivy and Finn Dennis all of Hood River, OR; daughter-in-law, Janice Fandrick; Richardson, TX and grandchildren: Jessica (Fiance Jeff Kirkland) Fandrick, McKinney, TX and Richard "Ricky" Fandrick, of Dallas, TX. Special friends, John and Pauline Adkins and Dorothy Nusbaum as well as many nieces and nephews and their families.

She was preceded in death by her parents, husband, son: Richard Fandrick, daughter, Madge (Daniel) Kilzer-York, step-son, Frank M. Fandrick; brothers: Julius "Junior," Robert "Bob," and Andrew Hartwig; and sister, Evelyn Clark.

Caroline was grateful to be reunited with several members of the Pleasant View nursing staff whom she had trained. Her family wishes to thank them all for their loving care during her time there.

Per her wishes no services will be held. Shriner Hager Gohlke Funeral Home is assisting the family. Condolences may be sent to the family at: shriner111.com.
