“I’m 88 years old, I’ve lived a good life, had many adventures with no regrets. When its my time to go, I’ll be ready.”
Caroline E. Greenly, 88, of Millville, went to be with the Lord, Thursday, March 23, 2023, at her home.
Anyone that knew Caroline, Mom, Gran, Aunt Niney, GG would agree she planned everything, and she never did anything slowly.

Caroline was a graduate of Milton High School. She enjoyed square dancing, where in fact she met her late husband of 64 years, Lee in 1953 at a Dance Hall. Her waitressing skills were renowned and she had an excellent memory for everyone’s favorite food. Lee and Caroline enjoyed travelling together all over the country and even taking their RV to Canada to camp and fish and visit with friends.
She was a member of Millville Christian Church Disciples of Christ.

Caroline also enjoyed fishing, playing cards, doing puzzles, and watching the Steelers play on Sundays after Church. In recent years Caroline loved doing community service at the Church Senior Center where she prepared food and provided comfort, laughter, and care for the seniors. Caroline Greenly will be remembered for touching many hearts with her unwavering love for others.
