WINDSOR — Kathleen Ann Carle of Windsor, passed away peacefully in Port Charlotte, Fla., Sunday, Aug. 22, 2021, after battling breast cancer.

Kathleen was born in Waterville, May 9, 1969, raised in Liberty, and graduated from Mount View High School. Upon graduation, Kathleen ventured out seeking travel and adventure, which led her to spend the winter months in Florida working in all aspects of the resort and hospitality industry. Kathleen met and married Jamie Carle in 1998, settled down in Windsor, and had two children, Cierra Lee-Anna Carle, and Dakota Joshua Carle.

For the past 22 years, Kathleen was the vice president and co-owner of J.C. Stone Inc., located in Jefferson, alongside her husband, Jamie. She was a member of Women in Stone, Maine Entrepreneurs, Think Local Biz to Biz Networking Group, and she was on the boards of the Maine Aggregate Association and the Associated General Contractors of Maine. She also created and hosted the annual Stone Symposium, which was held at J.C. Stone Inc. Kathleen was the recipient of the Pinnacle Award of Merit for the restoration of the Bowdoin Museum of Art and she appeared on the DIY Network’s Blog Cabins in 2014, which featured J.C Stone’s work.

Kathleen had a passion for natural health, nutrition, and spiritual energy. She received her Thetahealing certification from Beth Newman of Evolve in Your Energy, and her health educator certification from the Living Foods Institute in Atlanta, Ga. She also took numerous classes and immersed herself in the teachings of the Hippocrates Health Institute, located in West Palm Beach, Fla. Kathleen then dedicated her time teaching others how to achieve an optimal healthy lifestyle.

Kathleen was an incredibly positive person and approached her life with a “can-do” attitude. She will always be remembered for her beautiful smile, infectious laughter, kindness, and grace. She opened her home and heart to everyone, gave many kids a safe place to stay, and treated everyone she met like family.
