Carolyn was proud of the farm she and Keith operated south of New Market. In addition to the homeplace, they purchased and stewarded her childhood farm north of Winchester. She was a loving mother to her three boys and was just as motherly to all her grandchildren, nieces, nephews, cousins, and extended family. She loved them all dearly. She worked tirelessly on the farm in addition to her role as the homemaker. Later, she was elected to three terms as the Township Fiscal Officer. She co-authored a history book in 2003 titled New Market Memories. She was a 1971 graduate of Whiteoak High School. She always had a camera handy to capture the moment. She will be greatly missed.

The family is sincerely grateful for the loving care provided by the staff of Bell Gardens and Community Care Hospice.
