A gifted “green thumb,” Carolyn always was working in her yard. An avid reader, Carolyn enjoyed everything from inspirational reading to thriller novels. A superb hostess, Carolyn loved to entertain and host family gatherings. Haunted houses, roller coasters and swinging on her porch swing were a few of Carolyn’s favorites.
