Subject: RE: Obit: Caroline Paton-18 March 2019
Information on a possible gathering date in memory of Caroline Paton--this is from a letter written by Caroline's sister, Linda Swenson, & posted on Linnea's Facebook page. A mention has also been made that it would be nice to do something at this year's Old Songs Festival in Altamont (Albany), New York, the weekend of June 28-30. 2-19.

Caroline Paton 8/31/32 - 3/18/19:

Dear Friends,

Family spent time with Caroline today ó and David visited her before and after his music gigs for St. Patrickís Day. He was with her at Geer Nursing and Rehabilitation when she died peacefully at 3:15 AM today (3-18-19). She was such an important member of our family, and was dearly loved for her delightful company, beautiful singing, and stewardship of Folk-Legacy, now part of the Smithsonian Institution.

Linnea is in pre-planning for a possible gathering in or around Sharon on the Motherís Day weekend (May 11 and 12, 2019). Will send further information at a later date. It will be a lovely time to celebrate what Caroline Ann Paton has meant to us all.

Love,

Linda
