Carolyn (“Nanny”) was so special and I truly believe an angel sent by God to take care of children. Our daughter, Mary Folger Brightwell was one of Nanny’s little ones she watched over. Mary Folger is now 11 and Nanny helped mold her into the sweet girl she is. Rest In Peace Carolyn (“Nanny”)

Carolyn will be missed by so many. She was always there when she was needed and always kind. You seldom find anyone as genuinely kind as she was. She was a great example of a true lady. My life was enriched by knowing her.

“Nanny” was so special to our family. She and Ray were our ‘village’ in raising our daughter. Our hearts are broken for those left behind but we rejoice for your reunion with the love of your life. Until we meet again.
