As a resident of Cary Illinois for 51 years, Carolyn could make a friend with anyone. She worked at United Airlines and retired in 2005.

Her family was her entire world, spending time with her kids and grandkids was always her greatest joy. In her free time she enjoyed scootapootin’ at thrift stores and watching Days Of Our Lives. She cooked the best southern fixins. She was the best friend to us all, the sunshine on a rainy day. An absolute delight.
