Obituary for Rejeanne Pauline Caron

HILLSBOROUGH: Rejeanne Pauline Caron, 75, beloved wife, mother and friend, passed away from a sudden brain hemorrhage on Monday, January 8, 2018 at her home in Hillsborough. She was born in Port Daniel, Canada to the late Jean and Gertrude Vignet and raised by her aunt and uncle, Alphé and Edna Dea Sirois in Cacouna, Québec.

Pauline and her husband Marc moved to the Triangle in 1973 and for many years she worked as an accountant for several small businesses in Durham. She later served as Business Manager of the Daily Tar Heel, the campus newspaper of UNC-Chapel Hill. Pauline was a dedicated and supportive mother who provided endless opportunities and experiences for her children, all the while perfecting her French culinary skills. After raising their 3 children, Pauline embraced her passion for artistic quilting, including watercolor quilting, paper-piecing, mixed media and crazy quilts. Family and friends from around the world have inherited her beautiful and treasured works.

Mrs. Caron is survived by her husband of 50 years, Marc Caron; daughters, Kathleen Caron and husband Michael Datto, Melissa Caron Grahn and husband Eric Schwartz; son, Nelson Caron and wife Tiffany; grandchildren, Logan and Olivia Grahn, and their father Fredrick Grahn, Nicholas and Sophia Datto, Vivian and Eleanor Caron; brothers, François Vignet and wife Marie, Edmond Vignet and wife Lise and Marc Vignet; and the large extended family of her husband.

A memorial service with a reception following will be held at 2 PM on Sunday, January 14th at Clements Funeral Home Chapel at 1105 Broad Street, Durham, NC.

With a beautiful French-Canadian accent and a contagious smile, her compassion and warmth was at the center of our family, and her presence will be missed dearly.
