Caroline Mae Dunham died peacefully on Tuesday, February 6 in Findlay. Born on November 16, 1926 in Hancock County to Golda Wells and Marion Green. She attended Arlington High School and the University Of Cincinnati College Of Nursing. Caroline was married to John R. Dunham, and they later divorced. She was last employed by the Findlay Country Club, where she served as Office Manager.

Caroline is survived by three children, Susan (Nelson) Treadway of Findlay, Jane (Tim Scianamblo) of Bend, Oregon and John (Patti) Dunham of Cincinnati. Grandchildren are Christine (Devin) Kehoe of Hudson, Adam (Carla) Treadway of Findlay, Nicholas Treadway of Columbus, Sarah Snyder of Costa Mesa, California, Neale Snyder of
Columbus, and Elisabeth, Sam and Isabelle Dunham of Cincinnati. She has three great-grandchildren, Allie Caroline and Max William Kehoe of Hudson, and Tenley Ellen Treadway of Findlay. Caroline was preceded in death by an infant daughter, Cathy Lee.

Throughout her life, Caroline embodied a caring and loving demeanor that won the hearts of many. Her signature gift of caring for her family and friends will never be forgotten. Caroline faithfully cared for family and friends, always remembering birthdays and anniversaries and picking out just the right gift or card or baked good for the occasion. She was a selfless mother who always put her childrens’ needs above her own. Her utmost joy was cheering her grandchildren on, be it hockey, cheerleading, swimming, diving, soccer, baseball, band, orchestra, choir, dance, volleyball, or lacrosse. She was their biggest fan.

Caroline was a longtime member of Trinity Episcopal Church. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made in Caroline’s name to the church. Aside from financial donations, we know Caroline would appreciate loving acts of kindness in her name: send a card, give a hug, or say “I love you” to someone in her memory.

  1. Jane, I’ve always been glad our moms were friends over the many years! Caroline was a “keeper,” so sweet and caring. May God comfort you with good memories. Kathy Leathers Rodabaugh

    1. Thank you Kathy. I know mom really enjoyed your mom. We thought about her at the service, since she was a big part of Trinity. Hope you are well.

  2. Sue, Jane and John, I am soooo sorry to hear of your mom’s passing. It was great growing up with your family. Prayers and hugs for all of you! Karen Feigert-Brown

  3. Sue, Jane, John,
    My sincere condolences on your moms death. She was such a wonderful person. I always enjoyed talking to her whenever I saw her out and about. Since Sue messaged me about her passing I’ve been reminiscing about our childhood. I’m blessed to have known her. I was hoping to come pay my last respects, but I am heading out of town for the weekend. Please know that I am with you in spirit and you are all in my prayers. I forwarded her obituary to Luann and will show my mom when I see her.
    Love, Sue

  4. To the children of Caroline Dunham,
    We were neighbors of your mother on Washington Avenue for many years. We loved knowing her and thought she was a fine woman. Our daughter used to rake her leaves in the fall and once my husband killed a bat that had entered her home. She often brought us a coffeecake at Christmas time in thanks for little things we had done.
    Our sympathies as you lay your mother to rest.
