Caroline Ann Kensing

of Fredericksburg, TX

August 29, 1946 - June 25, 2022

  • Obituary

''To everything there is a season and a time to every purpose under heaven.'' Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

This is our time to mourn the passing of our beloved Caroline Kensing, wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, cousin and friend. Caroline's presence will be missed by all who knew her because to know her was to know her well. She took you into her embrace and her empathy and, when required, her difference of opinion. We are comforted in knowing that she rests peacefully in the arms of her loving Savior and in the presence of her loved ones who have gone before. Preceding Caroline in death were her parents, Edward ''Eddie'' Malochleb and Bertha Lou Klinksiek Malochleb.

Caroline was born August 29, 1946 in San Antonio, Texas. She passed from this life on June 25, 2022 in Austin, Texas. She spent her entire life in the Texas Hill Country and loved it dearly -- every flower, tree, bird and butterfly.

Surviving Caroline is her husband and best friend, Kenneth Kensing, and her children: John W. Carlson III (Nicki), Jennifer Gonzales (Arthur), Scott Carlson (Anne), Kyle Kensing (Stacey), and her grandchildren, the lights of her life: Eric Gonzales, Rachel Carlson, Matthew Gonzales, Shay Bluemel, Grace Carlson, Johnathan Carlson, Nicholas Gonzales, Keland Kensing, Samuel Carlson and Lucinda Carlson. Also surviving is her sister Peggy Contreras (Leo), many nieces, nephews and cousins, and a host of friends, especially lifelong friend and confidante, Joann Pfiester.

Caroline was a member of the family of Kerrville Church of Christ. She was a long-time employee and extended family member of those at Lehmann and Monroe Enterprises, and Ranch Enterprises, where she continued in part-time employment until her passing.

We, her family, thank you for your prayers, thoughts, and loving expressions, as well as your presence in our time of sorrow. We know that, as Ecclesiastes 3:1-3 says, we will once again return to a time of joy, a time for dancing, and a time to celebrate Caroline as she would choose to be celebrated.

Visitation will be held from 5-7 PM, Wednesday, June 29, 2022 at Grimes Funeral Chapels.

Services will be held at 10 AM, Thursday, June 30, 2022 at Kerrville Church of Christ. Interment will follow at Garden of Memories Cemetery.

Honorary pallbearers are all of the grandchildren and Leo Contreras, Reggie Tuck, David Lehmann and Reagan Lehmann. Pallbearers are Michael Hornes, Gene Lehmann, Corey Lehmann, Dickie Robertson, Steve Monroe, and Scott Fair.

In lieu of flowers, please make donations in Caroline's memory to the Pregnancy Resource Center of Kerrville or Arms of Hope.

I met Caroline at Zion Lutheran Church through Luther League as a teen I remember her great friendship with JoAnn Vance at that time I worked her father at First National Bank, after Schreiner and Texas Lutheran. Her friendship was also with my sister Bonnie. I pray for Gods comfort on the whole family. May HE comfort and love each of you as only HE can.60 +- years have passed I last saw her. Bonnie and I talk a lot about our childhood this afternoon and a lot of it was centered around Caroline, JoAnn and other relationships that were of interrelated amongst us all. The 50s were of excellent years. God bless.

I did not know Caroline as an adult well but she was a close neighbor when we were in grade school and I spent a great deal of time at her home, so I feel like I knew her long ago. Condolences and prayers to the family.
