Carolie E. Jenner died peacefully, April 23, 2014, at her Greenport home, surrounded by loved ones after a courageous two-year battle with cancer. She was 52.
She was born Nov. 16, 1961, in Melrose, Mass and grew up in Poughkeepsie. After graduating from Poughkeepsie High School she studied at University of Wisconsin-Madison, later earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in fine arts from University of California, Berkeley in 1987.
Carolie was an accomplished artist, jewelry designer and fabricator, and family members said this is where her passions lied. For many years she owned and operated Kahlie Custom Jewlery Studios in Brooklyn. For the last six years she had worked at Atelier Ten, New York City as a financial manager.
A natural leader who made friends everywhere she went, Carolie will be deeply missed by many whose lives she had touched.
Carolie is survived by her partner, Richard Starke of Greenport; her father, John Jenner and stepmother Moira Kelley Jenner of Sherman, Conn.; her mother, Jessica Renyolds Jenner of Castle Rock, Colo.; her brother, John Michael Jenner, his wife Vivian and their sons Jack and Will, also of Castle Rock, Colo.
Arrangements were entrusted to Horton-Mathie Funeral Home. A celebration of Carolie’s life will be held in Greenport at a later date.
This is a paid notice.
