Special thanks from the family to the Royal Columbian staff and Heartlinks Hospice for their living care of Carolyn.
I’m so sorry . I loved Carolyn and loved working with her. She was always elegant. I will always remember her being so devoted to her mother…I believe that they are reunited now.
May her memory be a comfort and bring you joy.
Auntie Carolyn was indeed a special and beloved person. She reflected God’s acceptance and love in so many ways, and my memory of her will always be a cherished one.
We were classmates at Yakima High School Class of 1957. I will share this sad news with those who knew Carolyn there. Peace be with the family.
