      TENANTS HARBOR - Caroline Elizabeth Connors, 97, died March 14, 2003 following a brief illness after a two-week stay at Anderson Inn, Quarry Hill in Camden.

      Born in West Orange, New Jersey, November 24, 1905, she was the daughter of Joseph and Madora Booream Robinson. Growing up in Newark and Elizabeth, New Jersey, she attended local schools and later attended an office procedures class.

      For more than 15 years, she worked as a clerk at manufacturing facilities in New Jersey.

      In 1936, she married Edmond G. Connors of Torrington, Connecticut. The Connors first made their home in East Orange, New Jersey. They later lived two years in Philadelphia and seven years in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, before buying a farm near Mr. Connors' hometown of Torrington.

      Following Mr. Connors' death in 1972, Mrs. Connors moved to an apartment in Torrington. In 1992, she moved to her daughter's and son-in-law's home in Buffalo, NY. After the death of her son-in-law, Victor H. Balowitz, in 1996, Mrs. Connors moved to Tenants Harbor, where she resided until her illness two weeks ago.

      Always active with church groups in the communities where she resided, Mrs. Connors enjoyed association with the Harwinton Congregational Church, Harwinton, CT, Pilgrim St. Luke's United Church of Christ in Buffalo, NY, and Tenants Harbor Baptist Church.

      After moving to Maine, she continued to knit blankets which she mailed to a mission in New York.

      In recent quieter years, she enjoyed watching quiz shows and observing nature around her home. She enjoyed cuddling her granddaughter, Anna's lambs.

      Mrs. Connors is survived by her daughter, Carolyn Helene Connors, of Tenants Harbor; three grandchildren, Rachel McAlinn and her husband Kevin of Brooklyn, NY, Leah Balowitz of Thailand, Anna Balowitz of Tenants Harbor; two great grandchildren, Helena McAlinn, Connor McAlinn; many nieces and nephews from New Jersey; as well as many relations by marriage from the Torrington area.
