Carolyn Winifred Lyon, age 96, of Eastpointe, got her wish and went home to the Lord on April 6, 2018. She was born on November 1, 1921 in Paducah, KY to Lila and Harry Finley. Carolyn was a long time resident of Eastpointe, and employee of NBD. She loved to play tennis, read, rock babies, do their laundry, and knit dishcloths.

I always loved going to Aunt Carolyn's house in the summer for cookouts she had a way of making everyone feel welcome and special!

My mom and I would go to Eastland to shop and we would go to the bank so we could visit Aunt Carolyn and she would always make a big fuss over whatever we bought and have a big smile as soon as she saw us coming in the door.

I would look forward to seeing her in church every Sunday at Zion United Methodist church, she was always dressed in her Sunday best and so beautiful inside and out!

My dad loved here dearly and would do anything for her...they can take care of each other now.

Dear friends,
We are privileged to have known Carolyn for so many years and to not only call her "friend" but "family" as well. I loved her gentleness and soft spoken voice and how she volunteered at the hospitals to cradle and rock the babies.
We will miss her, but I have great faith that she is in the arms of our Lord and Savior and oh how wonderful that must be.
Friends, know that we are holding you all near to our hearts and pray that the Lord will bring to each of you that Peace and Comfort that only He can bring.

Remember me when you hear the wind blow.
I am with God, I need you to know.
He called my name, and I went to see
If the voice I heard was speaking to me.
He took my hand, we walked along
The road to heaven, where I belong.
The angles sang so sweet and clear.
They sang of love and that Jesus is near.
I felt his touch, I saw his face,
I knew in an instant I was in his grace.
He spoke to me, I heard him say,
You are home now child, you have found your way.
So remember me when you hear the wind blow.
I am home now with God, I need you to know.

I am so thankful for Carolyn. She was such a sweet, loving person. I am thankful for her love for her daughter-in-law (my daughter) and I am thankful for the friendship we shared for a good many years. We have enjoyed her hospitality over the years, enjoyed outings together, and shopping together. She will be missed immensely. I know she is resting in the sweet arms of Jesus now and is with her loved ones that have gone on before. Rest in peace Carolyn, we will meet again. Marilyn
