Caroline Kane Atchinson

Published 10-26-12

ENID — Caroline Kane Atchinson, formerly of Enid, died Aug. 30, 2012, at Asbury Park Retirement Community in Newton, Kan.

Born Jan. 19, 1918, in Carthage, Mo., to Kent K. Kane and Pearl (Hockett) Kane, Caroline grew up in Carthage, where she graduated from high school. She received her bachelor’s degree from Oklahoma State University, where she majored in golf, having been inspired by Arnold Palmer.

She worked for several oil companies including Phillips Petroleum in Bartlesville.

While working at Stanolind in Oklahoma City, she met Keith Atchinson. They soon married and were together for 48 years before his death in 2001.

As a homemaker, Caroline’s first love after her family was service to the Lord. For many years, she devoted her time and energy as a teacher of the Bible and a witness to God.  She was active in many church activities, was a founding member of Interracial Women’s Club and attended Grace World Outreach Church. As a Sunday school instructor, contributor at numerous Camp Farthest Out gatherings, and sometime conference lecturer, Caroline selflessly shared of her wisdom and Christian experience.

Preceded in death by her husband, Keith, and oldest son Ted, Caroline is survived by her sons, Court and Kerry, five grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren.

Church services were held Saturday, Oct. 13, 2012, in Newton, Kan. Graveside remembrances will be 3 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 3, 2012, in Enid Cemetery.

Memorial contributions may be made to Asbury Park Retirement Community or Harry Hynes Hospice in care of Petersen Family Funeral Home, 215 N. Main, Newton, KS 67114.
