Memories Timeline


  1. I remember Carolyn as a very happy person. She always had good advice to give me on everything. She was a wonderful Mother and wife and I am glad I knew her.

  2. We are so sorry for you and your family’s loss. We will keep you in our thoughts and prayers.
    Rod & Elvera Wright

  3. I am saddened to learn of the loss of a wonderful childhood friend. When the Sinnott’s moved in nextdoor to the Schmitt’s, and they had 6 children, we wondered what would be the outcome, but we developed a long-lasting friendship among the whole family, and grieved when they moved back to Elberton, GA 9 years later. Our love will continue with the rest of the family, and hope to keep in touch, even though I’m now in TN. Our prayers are with you all.

  4. It was always a pleasure to get to visit with Carolyn at our South Oak Cliff Reunions. My prayer and thought are certainly with all of the family.
