Death: Jan. 29, 1917

Caroline was born near Hannover, Germany. She lived with her parents in Stroit, Lower Saxony.

She was united in marriage to Georg Bieritz, who lived in nearby Avendshausen, Lower Saxony. During their early married years, they lived in the house of Caroline's father in Stroit. Georg and Caroline had one son who died while they lived in Germany: Heinrich Wilhelm was born August 1, 1859 and died December 2, 1859.

In 1868 Georg and Caroline emigrated to the United States, sailing from Le Harve, France and arriving in New York City on June 22, 1868. They were accompanied by their three children; Hermine Caroline Wilhelmine (born September 4, 1862), Hermann (born August 29, 1865), and Georg Bieritz (born January 10, 1868). The family settled on a farm on Lisbon Road in Fox Township, Kendall County, IL. Georg and Caroline joined the Immanuel Evangelical Lutheran Church in Yorkville, IL.

While in Illinois, Georg and Caroline had five more children: August Wilhelm (born April 6, 1877), Dorothea Karoline (born March 26, 1870), Friedrich Andreas (born June 14, 1872), Heinrich Ernst (born September 9, 1879), and Louise Carolyn Bieritz (born November 26, 1874).

Caroline was survived by her sons: August Wilhelm (Emma), Friedrich (Anna), Hermann (Wilhelmine), and Heinrich Ernst (Wilhelmine) Bieritz; and her daughters: Wilhelmine (August) Nolte, Dorothea (August) Riemenschneider, and Louise (Martin) Allwardt. She was preceded in death by her husband, Georg, in 1881; her sons, Heinrich Wilhelm in 1859, and Georg H. in 1893; and her grandson, George in 1898.

Funeral services were held on February 1, 1917, at the Immanuel Evangelical Lutheran Chuch with the Rev. C.J. Lange officiating.
