Inez M. Lindabury Cavlier, 83, of Clinton Township, NJ passed away after a lengthy illness at Hunterdon Medical Center on Thursday, May 16, 2013, surrounded by the love of her children and grandchildren.
Inez was born on June 26, 1929 to Leslie and Elsie McCathern Lindabury in Mountainville, NJ, one of three children. After graduation from Clinton High School in 1947, she and her soulmate, Charles V. Cavlier, Sr. were married on December 6, 1947, making their first home in Bunnvale, NJ. Lifelong residents of the area, Inez and Charles built their home in Clinton Township in 1950, raised their children there and continued to be an integral part of their beloved neighborhood. Inez never let her physical limitations, due to childhood polio, dictate her way of life. She was an active participant in her community, always taking the lead and getting the job done by whatever means possible. She realized her dream of true independence by getting her driver's license after the age of 40. She could be seen zipping around town in her little yellow Bobcat, enjoying a lunch out with her many friends, doing volunteer work and sometimes dropping by just to chat.
She volunteered at Hunterdon Medical Center as a Friendly Visitor, worked for the State of New Jersey as a Tourist Information Aide at Liberty Village in Flemington and for the NJ Lottery Commission as a sales agent in Clinton. Most recently she was a booking agent for Balloon Adventures. In addition, she chaired and organized class reunions for Clinton High School Alumni Association and was an active member of a post-polio support group.
Mrs. Cavlier was pre-deceased by her husband Charles V. Cavlier, Sr. in 2011, her parents and her brother Stanley Lindabury. She is survived by her beloved children, Charles V. Cavlier, Jr. and his wife Cindy of Pittstown and Vickie L. Sloss of Clinton Township. In addition, her survivors include her grandchildren, Christopher C.
