Caroline B. Tallberg, born in West Haven on January 23, 1929, passed away peacefully with her family in Florida on November 10, 2018. She was just two months shy of her 90th birthday, which she proudly announced quite often! She will spend that special day in her Heavenly home celebrating with those loved ones that have gone before her, especially her precious parents, Edward and Esther Brockett, beloved Bob, her sisters Florence and Edith, and her hero, big brother Ted. Caroline will be greatly missed by her six children: Lynn Fuschino (Frank), Karen Moore (David), Bob Tallberg (Lynne), Joan Richardson (Mike), Paul Tallberg (Lynn Levine) and Jim Tallberg (Jill), her many grandchildren and great-grandchildren, her sister, Esther Miller and many nieces and nephews. She loved to boast that she had 10 grandchildren and 21 great-grandchildren. Most important to Caroline was spending time with her family. She often said she was blessed to live in Maine and spend time in Florida as well, so she could enjoy time with her family in both places. She especially loved eating lobster while in Maine and loved to shop and travel with family while in Florida. A long time Hamden resident, Caroline was a Deacon at Dunbar United Church of Christ, where she took delight with dear friends Ann Watjen and Jennifer Johnson, her co-chair on the Cookbook Committee of the Women's Fellowship and making apple pies for the Annual Apple Festival. Caroline was honored to be a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution of New Haven, Connecticut. Memorial service and burial will be private. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Dunbar United Church of Christ, 767 Benham St., Hamden, CT 06514.

  1. She was a great Lady. Every time I saw her I enjoyed her company. When Caroline talk to you she always made you feel that what you were talking about was important to her. She will be missed. Rest In Peace. Love Simone Comeau

  2. I am the oldest of us six kids and I’ve got my whole life of wonderful memories!!! One that just popped in my head was in the spring after a rain you would have us kids find sticks then you would tie a piece of string to one end, put a Curtain rod hook on it and then we’d find worms to put on the hook and off we’d go to fish in the puddles!! We really thought we were gonna catch the .big one.!!.

  3. I love and will miss you all the time Gram. Us kids would get so excited on the way to your place for the holidays where we knew there would always be plenty of good food and love. Some dysfunction but always in the end an embrace and feeling of being truly loved. Rest in Peace Gram.
