Cara loved baking and cooking delicious meals for her family and friends and enjoyed cuisine from many cultures around the world which she infused into her recipes. Her most coveted dish though was her humble “Meatloaf Double-Beatloaf”. She was a loving caretaker, and friend to many. Her dinner table was always open to share coffee and conversation. She always had a spare shoulder to lean on, an ear to listen, and hand to hold. She will be missed dearly.
At Cara’s request services will be private.
