Caren Robertson Obituary

Caren J. Robertson, age 57 of Fort Wayne, passed away from a sudden illness on Sunday, March 10, 2024 at DuPont Hospital in Fort Wayne.

She was born on June 11, 1966 in Fort Wayne to Donald and Jane (Noll) Smith.  She was a 1984 graduate of Bishop Dwenger High School in Fort Wayne.   

Caren married Mark Robertson on November 28, 1986 in Fort Wayne.  Mark resides in Fort Wayne.

She proudly worked hard alongside of her husband in their drywall and interior painting business for many years.  Her family was everything to her.  Caren took pride in raising her family and she patiently homeschooled her kids for several years.  Later in life, she especially enjoyed time with her grandkids.  She was very proud of her family! 

Caren enjoyed fishing with Mark, working outside, gardening, canning, cooking and baking.  She was happy to have mastered her mother-in-law's famous homemade bread recipe, which was a family favorite. She was especially known for gifting homemade food to those she cared for. In earlier years she loved reading with her kids and later in life loved listening to audio books. She is most lovingly remembered for her kindness and caring towards everyone she met.
