Lisa and Bryan I met your mom in 1987, I worked next to her at Scott CU. We went to festivals and craft fairs all the time, many adventures. One of my fondest memories was a group of us (Carol, Shirley, Dolly your mom and I) took the train to Chicago to shop. We had a blast. Even though we moved away, we would still send Christmas cards and it was great to keep up with all of you on her FB page. May God comfort you during this difficult time. Love Denise

Lisa and Bryan, I'm in shock to hear about your mother’s passing. Carolyn was a special lady. Friendly, caring, and loving. I know she loved her family, especially her grandchildren. I will be praying for you, Bryan and family. May God bless and bring peace. 🙏🙏🙏🙏

Carolyn was the first person who made me feel welcome at SCU and our friendship grew from that day. I have fond memories of all the Apple Butter and Strawberry festivals we attended together and all the lunches we shared talking about life. Rest in Peace my friend, I miss you and you will always hold a special place in my heart.

Carolyn was part of our group. Ida, Roz. Carolyn and I would go out to eat on Friday nights and then play rummycube. I will miss seeing and talking to her. Rest in peace and enjoy singing in God's heavenly choir dear friend.

Lisa and Bryan, I’m so sorry for your loss. I Enjoyed all those years being neighbors and was always happy to see your mom. She was always happy and kind. She smiled over all the grands and great grands on Facebook. It was always a special treat to bump into her shopping or at the grocery store and catch up on things. She will be so missed.
