About Caroline…
Caroline graduated from Henderson High School in 2002. While at Henderson, Caroline was part of the championship soccer and lacrosse teams. She went on to receive her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in environmental science and management (magna cum laude) from Duquesne University in Pittsburgh. At Duquesne, Caroline continued her lacrosse career.

She was most recently employed as an environmental specialist for US Airways in
Philadelphia and enjoyed being a contributing member to the BLUER committee
dedicated to reducing greenhouse gas emissions in West Chester.

Caroline Gallagher Cranston passed away Saturday, May 8, 2010, at her home with family
at her side. Throughout her life Caroline was an inspiration to those around her.
She embraced living every day with a positive spirit — most notably
in the last 21 months while she courageously battled leukemia.
Caroline’s compassionate and selfless personality positively impacted
each and every person she encountered in her brief life.

She particularly enjoyed spending time with family and friends, traveling, watching and
playing all sports and, of course, hugging her dog, Karmen.
