  1. I am so saddened to hear about the passing of Caitlin sending so much love to Caitlin’s family and friends. May precious memories comfort you all during this time. Caitlin was one in a million with a heart of gold, an infectious laugh and smile. She achieved so much in such a short time and took on any challenge that came her way her determination and strength was admirable from getting her first car, to finishing her nursing, purchasing her first house and all her other achievements. She loved her family and friends so much and would speak highly of them and do anything for them. I have many fond memories with Caitlin and am greatful for the time and memories we got to make, forever 33! Love you Caitlin xox

  5. Hi family. I am Warren Nurse Educator at Golf Links Road who has had the privilege of working closely with Caitlin these past years.
    Janet and I share an office with Caitlin and our jobs are intertwined teaching and guiding Graduate nurses, student nurses and senior nurses.
    Caitlin was a wonderful Clinical Support Nurse. So caring, considerate and knowledgeable with our new inexperienced nurses who all have felt her loss significantly. It is just not fair when the world takes such a beautiful person away.
    Caitlin was a key member of our group and the wider health care community here; she will be greatly missed by managers and colleagues who were co-workers and friends alike.

  13. Dear Caitlin I am so sorry to hear about your loss. You were such a great woman and so great to work with in the ICU. You were so smart and funny and had a heart of gold. You will be missed. Xxx

  14. Caitlin was a much loved and respected member of the Clinical Support Nurse (CSN), Learning Hub and Golf Links Road (GLR) teams at Peninsula Health. She was known as a compassionate, caring, kind and amazing nurse. Caitlin supported and nurtured students, graduate nurses and ward staff alike. She loved working at the GLR site as a CSN and always said to us how much she enjoyed working there in her education and support role, which was well-suited to her caring nature. Caitlin was passionate about developing herself and others to be the best they could be, and was always thinking about providing the best care for her patients.
    Caitlin will be sadly missed at Peninsula Health. Our sincerest condolences to her family, friends and colleagues.

  17. I’m in shock that you’re gone. It’s absolutely heart breaking. You were such a happy, friendly, beautiful, talkative, helpful nurse. I’m so happy that you came onto our ward and that we made friends. I’m going to miss coming into your office just for a chat and seeing your smile in the staff room. You were always so ready and willing to help out. You were so intelligent. You helped me with my assignments and taught me new skills. You were an absolutely beautiful person. Everybody at GLR1 genuinely loved working with you. You fit in so well with our team. This loss is going to be felt so deeply by so many. We’re going to miss you so much Caitlin. I hope you got reunited with your puppy on the other side.

  20. To the Jones family,
    My name is Kim, l was fortunate enough to have worked along side Caitlin at Mulgrave Private ICU for the last 5 years. We were more than colleagues, we became very good friends and shared many social outings together.

  21. Caitlin- my forever friend. I am absolutely devastated to hear of your passing. Over 20 years of friendship with so many memories made along the way. From high school to adulthood you were such a huge part of my life and I am so fortunate that we were able to remain connected over the years.

    My heartfelt condolences to the Jones family. I cannot imagine the pain you are feeling. Rodney and Margaret, you raised an amazing, smart, generous, and ambitious woman. She had amazing parents she spoke so highly of.

    Caitlin, your life taught me to be resilient and show tenacity, but also not to be too serious, and that there is always time to joke around. Your tragic passing has reminded me to make the most of each day.

    I know we were meant to go and see Eminem the next time he came down, but I know you will be there with me in spirt when he does.

    Rest in Peace Caitlin, I will love you forever and miss you always.

  22. I worked with Caitlyn in the ICU & it has been a bitter shock to lose such a young, vibrant, beautiful & talented woman. I can’t imagine how you, her family must ache for her. She has been so profoundly kind to me, encouraging and warm as I have started my career in ICU. If Caitlyn was on the floor, you knew everything was going to be okay. I am so sorry for all of us at her passing, especially to those closest to her, but I am grateful for having met and known her, even if only for a short while.

  23. As many other people have expressed, Caitlin was smart, funny and kind. She had such warmth behind her eyes and truly was a good soul. She spoke to everyone with the same kindness and respect. We could be complete serious and have a great laugh in the same conversation. Work will be less bright without her.
    We loved chatting about our dogs. Her poor dogs will miss her but she back with Molly Moo.
    I send my love and support to Caitlin’s family and friends.

  24. Our dearest beautiful Caitlin.
    You were always so bright, full of energy and warmth when saying “good morning” each day.
    You always took pride in teaching us staff and the students that walked through our doors, making sure to guide us while making it an unique learning opportunity.
    You were always there for a chat, or a “pick your brain” moment- no matter how busy you were.
    And your love of buying colorful scrubs energy met its match with me (remember that big FIGS sale- sorry not sorry haha), I’m sorry I never had the time to make you your Disney scrub top.
    Thank you for teaching and guiding me to continue to study, lifting me up when I wanted to quit, explaining that broadening my horizons doesn’t have to be as scary as I think it will be- I will remember this each time I go on placement/each time I want to quit- your ever lasting and unwavering support to continue with uni.
    Our last day together consisted of a MET call and conversations regarding my uni semester results- such a simple and standard day on the ward, yet already I am missing those future conversations that will never happen.
    There is a large part of our family missing from our ward since you went to sleep.
    We will miss you forever dear Caitlin.
    We miss you so much already, the loss is hard to explain- Even the patients have felt it.
    How can one week without you be gone already?
    Our heart aches for your family and your puppies.
    May you rest in peace, Caitlin, gone way too soon, but forever free of pain and illness.
    Miss you so much our beautiful Caitlin.
    Love and hugs to all your family.

  25. I only heard about Caitlin’s passing today through my husband. I went back through our messages in the past, and saw her message saying that I have “changed the whole course of her life in a positive way” by telling her to apply as a CSN. She told me many times how happy she was working and getting a lot of support from GLR. I have always believed in her skills and capability as nurse. I knew she’d be a great support nurse and educator. She is good at what she does, and I have always believed in her. She might not know, but I wouldn’t have survived my post graduate course in Intensive Care without her encouragement. I even completed another certificate, and had her support all throughout that course. So I guess, it’s her who changed the course of my life, and not the other way around.

    To the loved ones Caitlin has left behind, our sincerest condolences. Caitlin has always been kind to me, and I have only good things to say about her. I hope this brings you comfort that even if she has gone too soon, she has made an impact on many people, including me. May she rest in peace.

  26. We were so fortunate to have Caitlin’s support. The gift she gave us was to share her wealth of experience and beautiful gentle nature. Caitlin with her lovely smile will be so missed.
    Our heartfelt thoughts go to everyone who loved Caitlin. We hope her family and close friends know that she will be remembered with fondness by us all.

  27. Caitlin was the type of friend who you’d get up to mischief with and have the best time. She was fun, loving, kind and caring. Her heart was made of gold. She loved her family more than anything in the world and I admired her for that.
    I will always remember her as the one that helped me so much during a really tough time. She was so selfless. An angel was taken away too early from this world and we will feel her loss deeply. I miss you Caitlin, and always will.
