Caroline Whitehead (née Marshall) was born in London, England. Abandoned in infancy, she was raised as an orphan in the County of Kent. At the age of sixteen she was sent out to work as a domestic servant. With World War II in progress she was soon conscripted into an aircraft 'munitions factory in the County of Surrey. She married in 1944. When hostilities ended, she enrolled in a commercial college. After emigrating to Canada in 1967, a long and emotional journey began as she regularly travelled between England and Canada over the years, in a desperate attempt to learn the truth about her parents, and find her missing family. Caroline has one child, three grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. She lives in Sidney, British Columbia, Canada.
