To know Carolyn, is to love Carolyn. I am so fortunate to have had opportunity to become friends with this family. I would like to share a favorite memory. One evening while "consulting" with Carolyn at the shop, she was working on a cake, cutting off the edges. She offered to make me a "twinkie". I said, "you can't do that, the frosting is for the cake!" She retorted with "I can do anything I want!" My smile must have spoken for itself, as she sent me home with my own box of homemade chocolate twinkies! I will always remember her "I can do anything" attitude. Thank you Carolyn for so many life lessons! Give Cliff a hug for me :)
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

My name is nothing to your Mom or loved ones. I am just a person that had the awesome privilege to have known your Mom throughout the years. I was a receptionist at DeMotte Phy. and later at a dental office in DeMotte. Your Mom will always stand out as a great loving person. She always shared to me her love of her family. I will miss her as I know you all will as well

Marisela Upchurch left a message on February 15, 2023:
Carolyn was very special to me. We worked many years together on a special needs school bus. She loved her job and she adored those kids. She made every day very interesting with her little stories. Oh and if she saw a piece of farming equipment that fascinated her, she would pull over and explain how it worked. She was a Beautiful person both inside and out. The day she couldn't drive the bus anymore I debated quitting because it wasn't the same without her. She will always be a huge part of my heart and I will forever be her Mary...she always introduced me as "my Mary". Love you Carol.

She is such a beautiful sweetheart of a woman. I loved her and Cliff so much. They were one of the first people to befriend me when I was a police officer there. She always had a smile and brightened my day. She love driving the school bus and the kids. Going to miss her.
