Memories Timeline


  1. My heart goes out to you, Lynn, Jill and Will! I’ve felt like part of the family since you moved to Covington St. when I was in the 3rd grade. Love you like sisters and Don and I will keep you in our prayers.

  2. Heart and prayers for peace with all of you. She was such a sweet aunt. Fond memories of her and Uncle Dan as they welcomed me into their home over the years. Distance kept us apart but my thoughts were of her frequently. Her smile has become a part of my heart over the years as a mind memory never yo be forgotten. Love

  3. Lynn and Jill, so sorry for your loss of a beautiful Lady your mother was, and she will be missed.
    I had great respect for her.
    Again, so sorry for your loss.
    Many Prayers.
    Edgar F. Currie, Jr.

  4. Her smile, kind words each time we met, and knowing the faith she carried with her always.
    This is the memory I will carry.
    Prayers for your family

  5. Carolyn was one of the kindest, and most precious woman that I have ever met. She would do anything she could for you. She made the world a much better place with her in it. She will be missed, but she will never be forgotten. I loved her so much ❤️

  6. Carolyn was the most thoughtful and considerate woman that I’ve ever known. Those that she loved were extremely fortunate, because it was unconditional…She was my trusted mentor when we worked at John Carroll, and I discovered that our lives had many parallels–
    We both had a sister named Kathryn
    We disliked elevators, and always climbed the stairs
    We had an intense love of the old
    We loved Autumn walks &
    We especially loved our families
    I actually ended up in the 80’s living in the same beautiful old Albemarle Road house that formally was her family home, where she grew up!
    She will be greatly missed and never forgotten.
    God bless and love her, Lynn, Jill, and William…
