Carolyn was a loving a devoted wife and mother. Carolyn found joy in her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. She loved to spend time reading to them, playing with them, and offering them goodies. Tea parties with her granddaughters were also a favorite activity.  She lit up when she was with her grandchildren and great grandchildren.

She loved to sing and was with the choir at Blessed Sacrament and also Holy Angels High School. She had a beautiful voice that was a joy to hear. She had a great time bowling with her friends in a bowling league. She loved to shop; particularly with her daughters. She loved to read and bake. She had a sweet tooth, enjoying ice cream, cookies, and lemon-flavored goodies, especially her mom’s lemon meringue pie.

Carolyn and her delightful smile and personality will be dearly missed by her family and friends.  We find comfort in knowing she is without pain and spending eternity in Heaven.

    I am so sorry to hear that Carolyn passed away. We always considered her Aunt Carolyn and loved her very much. She was a very sweet and loving person and I know that my mom, Karen Gibson, will welcome her to heaven with open arms. Love to the whole family, Barb and Norm Mannhalter

    She was regarded as “family” by almost anyone who ever met her. The absolute picture of capable. There was no happening in the Lorang Kingdom that was not easily handled by the boss. A natural director, organizer, etc.. beautiful, smart.
    How could Dale have possibly just walked by? Peace and Rest.
