Caroline Jean Kluge Obituary
 
Caroline Jean (Peters) Kluge, 69

Loveland, CO

7/21/1947 - 5/30/2017

Caroline Jean Kluge, age 69, passed away on May 30, 2017 in Loveland, CO after a prolonged illness. A celebration of her life will be held in St. Cloud and announced at a later date.

  Caroline was born on July 21, 1947 in St. Cloud, MN to Lloyd and Doris (McDowell) Peters. She was the eldest of five children and graduated from St. Cloud Technical High School in 1965. She studied music and elementary education at the College of St. Benedict, graduating in 1969 with a Bachelors of Arts in Education. Her college years were fun- filled including a trip abroad to Austria, Italy, and France, and adventures with friends to Chicago and Colorado.

  Caroline was a beloved elementary education teacher and taught in the Litchfield, MN and Princeton, MN schools. She married Michael Kluge in 1973 and they had a son, Kristopher Kluge. Together they enjoyed winter vacations to Grand Cayman islands and skiing adventures to Colorado. She was exceptionally proud of Kristopher and his accomplishments as a pilot, investor, and intellectual.

  Caroline was a pianist and a gifted soprano known for her powerful operatic voice.  

She sang in many productions including the lead in Madam Butterfly. Her sense of humor permeated family life as she often played practical jokes on family members. She loved pretty clothes, nice cars; a wide array of music, antiques, cats, and swimming in the summer time. She was a beautiful person, a great mother, and a wonderful sister who took time to be in baby-buggy parades, shop and go to the beach with her younger siblings.

  Caroline is survived by her son Kristopher Kluge, Loveland, CO; her ex-husband Michael Kluge, Chanhassen, MN; brother John (Donis) Peters, Sauk Rapids, MN; sisters Barbara (King) Banaian and Judith (Mike Sjogren) Peters, St. Cloud, MN.

  She is also survived by 2 beloved cats, Charro and Evita.

  She was preceded in death by her parents and brother Thomas Peters.
