Carolyn and I grew up on the same street in Charleston WV. We were classmates at Stonewall Jackson High School. Although we didn't see each other often we always reconnected at our Reunions. She was always joyful and fun to be with. She will be missed. I send my condolences to her family.

Dear Fitzgerald Family,

I knew Carolyn as a fellow English teacher in Augusta County. What I appreciated about her was her positive outlook, her welcoming smile, and her friendly nature. My prayers are with you as you mourn her death and celebrate her life.

My mom, Leona Boling Wilkinson was a sister to Carolyn’s father Otis. They were a wonderful family and Carolyn was so sweet. She visited with my parents often. I will never forget her. RIP

Lyle, Julia, Bill,

I am so sorry to see of Carolyn's passing. I have thought of her many times since mother, Betty Boling Patteson, passed away suddenly on Nov 9, 2009. Carolyn was a special lady as was her mom and dad. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.

For a few years, we got to know Carolyn a little better when she & family would come to Pa and visit. We will always cherish those moments. We would sit and talk for a long time. During these talks, stories were always shared about family and the family tree. We learned so much from Carolyn with everything she said. She will be missed by us and so many more.
Carolyn thanks for those memories. One day we will meet again in Heaven. God got another great angel. We love you and will miss you dearly. Please watch over our family. Much love and respect.
