Carolyn was a retired teacher from the North Greene School District. She enjoyed volunteering to help with art classes at North Greene, traveling, riding side-by-sides, fishing, watching hummingbirds, and creating pottery. Most of all she loved spending time with her children and grandchildren.
Carolyn and Vern were living life to the fullest traveling and UTV riding. She will be greatly missed.
