I have many fond memories of Carolyn - initially as a fun loving, caring high school classmate. Carolyn had such a great laugh and always displayed genuine interest in other people and their lives. Since I moved away from Fremont I would not see Carolyn as frequently but I fondly recall seeing her at our 50th class reunion where she introduced me to her husband Mike. We had a great conversation that evening. Secondly my mother, who worked with Carolyn at Dr. Trivett's office, thought the world and all of Carolyn - I have to admit at times I felt mother thought more of Carolyn than she did of me!! All great memories! You are all in my thoughts and may all your wonderful memories of a great lady sustain you during this difficult time.

RIP CAROLYN! You have always called me a brat but that’s ok. I know that I was and still am. My memory is when you and Mary would come from running around and Dad would lock the door at a certain time. So of course you and Mary would come to my bedroom window to let you bad girls in the house. But then I don’t remember if Mary would do this but you did for sure! You would tell me to go and sleep on the couch and sometimes I would or I would hang on to the bed on my side for my dear life OR I WOULD HOLD MY HAND OUT FOR MONEY! Oh that would make you so MAD and I loved it. I do know that Mary was your bestest friend and she will miss you forever. RIP Carolyn! When I get to the gates you will be there calling me a BRAT. Love you! MARKO. I guess I will you miss because you won’t be here to call me a brat anymore. 🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏
