Condolence & Memory Journal

I am so sorry to hear of Carolyn's passing. I have such fond memories of living in 56A and Carolyn was such a great landlady, friend and nurse to me. I remember her warm smile and laugh. She even let me paint the bathroom pink! When she saw it she hesitated to say anything then sighed and said well, it can be painted over May She Rest In Peace. Thinking of you all now and please accept my sympathy. -Kathy

Dear Mark, Susie and family,
I was sorry to hear of your Mom's passing. It has been years since we have seen each other, but have warm memories of our Moms' friendship and your mother's wonderful laugh. Please know that we are thinking of you.

Carolyn and I knew each other through our membership at WCUC.
We worked on many projects together. One of my fondest joint endeavors with her was a shower we hosted for a mutual friends daughter. We had fun and it was a glorious time for all.
She was so helpful to my daughter when she was interested in Order of Eastern Star as well as being a great help with Girl Scouts.
She was so knowledgeable about so many shared interests/ She has left a great legacy.
