Caroline  M.  Rapone

15 February 1961 – 12 April 2022

Originally from Franklinville, NJ, for several years she attended Haddonfield Middle and High School where activities included cheerleading.

The family moved to Spain in 1977 and then to England where Caroline graduated high school and was crowned Queen of the May.  She was very involved in theatrical productions in various countries, the most notable being: A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum and  Fiddler on the Roof.  Stateside Caroline had worked as a paralegal and production manager in a language translation service. Bilingual in Spanish and English, she was able to manipulate several other languages as well.

Ultimately she married her childhood sweetheart, José Garcia-Guerrera, and settled in Spain before returning to the United States, her most recent residence being Merchantville, NJ.  Caroline had resided in Germany for many years and has two children from a previous marriage with Rolando Rivera, Caroline Rivera and Joseph Rivera (married to Stephanie Luciotti Rivera), including four grandchildren, Carmen, Abram, Vera and Jo-Jo with another on the way. Within her nuclear family, she is survived by her mother, Caroline V Giorgi Rapone; sisters, Nancy Rapone Martin and Norma H Rapone Appleby; and brother, George Rapone.

Fabulous cook, wonderful home decorator, well-honed sense of style and natural comedian.  Bottomless bottles of Baileys in memory of our Cal!
