  1. Carolyn will be missed by many and missed by Patrick and I. We loved her and feel so lucky that we had the chance to know her. The time spent with her was always wonderful. You are all in our thoughts and prayers. Sincerely, Patrick and Mona Conway

  2. Such sad news . It was a real treat when Carolyn called me up at my office last year. It is not too often I get phone calls from others who hail from Wampum. I was very much looking forward to catching up with her over lunch. My mom, Sandie, was equally looking forward to getting together with Carolyn the next time she was down visiting. Carolyn expressed how happy she was to be living in St. Pete and how much joy her granddaughter brought to her life. She was a great piano teacher and, most importantly, a good soul. Our sympathy for a life gone too early from this earth. Love & Peace, The Miles & Looney Families

  3. So sorry for your loss. A wonder personality I will always remember. Smiling and happy. Our thoughts and prayers our with your family Joann. Love, John and Lisa Nock

  4. My sincere condolences to your family. I was lucky enough to meet Carolyn at Lowe’s. She was always so full of life with her big heart and boisterous laugh. Carolyn truly was a special lady and will always hold a special place in our heart.
