Carolyn was a proud graduate of Odessa Montour Central School and furthered her education at SUNY - Potsdam. Despite her academic achievements, Carolyn found her true calling in the home, dedicating her life to the care and nurturing of her family. She was a homemaker in the truest sense of the word, creating a warm and welcoming environment for all who entered her home.

Carolyn's love for her family was only matched by her love for her country. She was a proud patriot, deeply appreciative of the freedoms and opportunities afforded to her as an American citizen.

She was a fan of Disney movies, often watching them with her grandchildren, creating memories that will be cherished for years to come. An avid animal lover, Carolyn enjoyed watching the National Geographic channel, marveling at the beauty and diversity of the natural world.

In her later years, Carolyn found great joy in caring for her grandchildren. She was their rock, their safe haven, and their biggest cheerleader. Her home was a place of laughter, love, and endless Disney movie marathons. Her grandchildren were her pride and joy, and she cherished every moment spent with them.

Carolyn's life was a testament to the power of love and selflessness. She touched the lives of many with her kindness and generosity, leaving a lasting legacy of love. Her memory will live on in the hearts of her family, friends, and all who knew her.
