Carolyn took great joy in sharing her love of color by painting art and beading beautiful necklaces. While strong in mind and weak in body, mom lived her final years making necklaces for each new lady coming to the manor, as well as teaching bible lessons each Saturday and Sunday, as her body would allow. She will be remembered for her loving and caring heart.
