March 10, 2001 – November 3, 2020

Caroline Mary Lupori died on Tuesday, November 3, 2020 skiing in the backcountry near Bozeman, Montana at only 19 years of age. Born on March 10, 2001 in Steamboat Springs to parents John and Susan Lupori, Caroline was the youngest of the Lupori family. She was well known and adored throughout the Steamboat Springs community. In her short time there, Caroline made a measurable and positive impact on the Bozeman community as well.

Caroline was a special soul who did all she could to ensure those around her were happy. She inspired so many to have fun enjoying all the adventures the Rocky Mountains and Pacific Ocean have to offer. Caroline spent many blessed days of her short life skiing, scuba diving, and surfing with family and friends. She was a good person who wished people happiness; she purposefully chose to positively impact others. Caroline’s unique and passionate personality created and spread true joy. She touched the lives of so many; our beloved, shining, happy girl, the light of our lives and the star of our hearts and leaves us smiling through our tears. She was joy personified.
