Caroline L Halley was born December 21, 1927 in her family’s home in Brooklyn, NY
and died February 19, 2018 in the company of friends and family.
She was an excellent cook and held a firm belief that all of life’s problems were best
addressed with food. She was an active member of St. Peter’s Orthodox Church of
Jackson, MS before she moved to Atlanta for the past five years. She thought Brooklyn
was the best but was happiest in the South. She enjoyed sports but never learned any
rules of the games. She was the life of the party and never met anyone who couldn’t
use her advice. Frank Sinatra was the love of her life. She was a fine dancer, a poor
singer and a master of arts and crafts.
She is survived by her daughter Anna Griffin and her husband Rick of Jackson, MS and
her son Robert Halley and his wife Jeanne-Marie of Atlanta, GA. She is also survived by
four grandchildren: Zachary Freundt and his wife Brianne, Emma Freundt, Zoe Freundt
and Cassie Freundt.
Visitation will be Wednesday, February 21, 2018 at 10:00 am at St. Elias Orthodox
Church, 2045 Ponce De Leon Avenue Northeast, Atlanta, GA 30307. Funeral will follow
at 11:00 am. Burial at Floral Hills Cemetary.
