Carolyn Sue Paris (70) of Waldorf, MD passed away peacefully at home on 03/10/2019 surrounded by her family after a long illness.

Carolyn is preceded in death by her father and mother, O.G. "Buster" and Faye Martin of Memphis, MO., and siblings Pauline, Bud, Billy, Dorothy and Mary.

She is survived by her wife of thirty years, Tammi Morris of Washington DC., and her family; Doris Orton of Memphis, Mo., Margret Witmer of Cocoa Beach, FL., Jan Petersen of Kansas City, MO., by her two sons James "Chad" Paris (Jennifer Paris) and Chris Paris from her first marriage and her seven grandchildren Bobbie Paris, Jeri Hurst (Chardannay Hurst), Jimmy Paris, Rachele Paris, Sarah Paris, Mary Paris, and Samuel Paris and her great-grandchildren Lillian Hurst and William Truman.

Her professional accomplishments included promotion from a bus driver to a bus driver trainer for Prince George's County Maryland school system, instituting the first school bus rodeo in Prince George's County, teaching driver's education, and being active in the ACE\AFSCME Local 2250 Union as a shop steward.

Carolyn loved to be near the water. Many family memories were made near the beaches and shores of Maryland crabbing, fishing, or just enjoying the sun and the waves. Carolyn and Tammi spent vacations in Cape Cod taking in the sights, sea, and spray of the whales.

She was the true matriarch of her family and took great pride in her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren not only for their accomplishments but also for the content of their character.

Her unconditional love, support, and sage wisdom will be greatly missed.

In lieu of flowers, family requests donations to "Cancer Treatment Center of America".

Carolyn was my trainer. I was very appreciative of her low key, professional style. I am known to have impressive parallel parking skills amongst my co-workers and family members! I got them from Carolyn! The way she explained it was perfect! She gave me great confidence in driving the bus in general, the first time she took me out, me behind the wheel, it was snowing. She was a great trainer and a very good person, may God bless her, and you all, her family at this difficult time.

I met you when I was a lead driver, you helped me become a trainer, we had a lot of fun, while planning safety meetings, doing the rodeo and playing cards in Salisbury! I missed you when you retired and am missing you now, rest in peace, hugs and prayers to Tammi and the family!

Carolyn had made a place in my heart when I was an auxiliary driver way back when. She came up to me at a safety meeting that I knew absolutely no one. She introduced herself and sat down beside me. I was scared to death , but her presence calmed me. When she chose Tammi I knew they would be great together because they both loved to laugh, sees the good in people, and to be helpful in any situation. She was dedicated in her work and did it very well.
Condolences to the family. She will be sorely missed. And Tammi, just know in your heart that she loved you and she always will.
Good-bye all friend.
