She loved her family dearly and took every opportunity to spend time with them. Carolyn was incredibly proud of her children and grandchildren.

She held friendships deeply in her heart. She loved her dogs, always having one or two in her home. Carolyn loved the solitude of nature (please remove). She enjoyed gardening and every evening in the summer she sat outside and enjoyed the quiet. She liked to crochet and made numerous beautiful gifts for her family. Carolyn enjoyed movies, reading, music, and puzzles. She greatly enjoyed traveling with her family and to see her family. She was a wonderful cook and her talents extended to canning and preserving the harvest from her garden. She passed on those skills to both of her daughters.
Carolyn was beautiful and strong. Her strength was evident in every part of her life. She taught her family so much about moving past hard times without looking back.
