Caroline Beck was born January 4, 1937 in Newburg Township to Lewis and Evelyn Beck. She attended grade school at the Newburg Township School #2 and graduated from Hatton High School. Throughout high school, she worked at the local cafÃ© and grocery store.
Caroline married Henry Beine Jr. on December 28, 1962 at the Goose River Church in rural Hatton. She became a farmer's wife, mom, and manager of daily activities while Hank was busy with farming. When her sons got older, Caroline went to work at Ole and Lena's Lefse factory in Hatton. This was a job she really enjoyed. She also enjoyed gardening, visiting with family and friends, making crafts to sell at craft shows, and to give to her family and friends. She also enjoyed cooking and baking. She is quite famous around the area for her "world's best" lefse and old fashioned doughnuts.
In the later years, Caroline's most important jobs were making sure Hank got the "Honey-Do" lists done and bragging about her grandsons, Dalton and Andrew Beine.
