Carolyn M Myers, 84 passed away September 5, 2019 with her husband Harold Myers by her side. She was born to the late Dr. Edward Delehanty and Norma Delehanty Stewart, August 17, 1935 in Denver Colorado. Carolyn graduated from South High, and attended Colorado College and Denver University. Carolyn graduated from a business finishing school in New York City, where she planned on living, but was called back to Colorado by her family.

Their 25 year marriage was blessed with 3 children, William (Bill) Gower, Kathleen (Kathy) Williams, Timothy (Tim) Gower, 6 grandchildren, 4 great-grandchildren, 2 step sons, 2 step grandchildren, and 1 step great-grandchild. Carolyn raised and showed horses with her family members, went camping, built a house and barn in Elizabeth, CO. Was a member of the camping singles camping club, member of the pioneer women club, volunteered time and knowledge at Denver Public Schools Library and her passion was researching her family tree on Ancestry.com. She volunteered her EMT services to Denver General, by going on ambulance calls. Her primary employment was selling real estate, and she also obtained her EMT license. There are so many memories of Carolyn’s life, it is difficult to name them all. The best way to describe her is she was willing to try anything, to see if she liked it or not. Carolyn remarried on September 18, 1994 to Harold D. Myers, they lived in Arvada, CO in the same house for 25 years and enjoyed gardening, traveling to different cities calling square and round dances with the Ridge Runners Dancers. She made jewelry with her daughter for many years and was still making jewelry until she became too ill. One of the things she said to her 57 year old daughter, was “Don’t ever get old”, she laughed and told her it’s a little too late for that. She had many sayings and quirks about her, the most memorable was her smile.

I remember the first time I met Carolyn and Harold about 13 years ago, they were so welcoming of me becoming part of their family and lives. I remember being so nervous, but Carolyn gave me a big hug and I could just feel her love for me already right then and there.
Carolyn was not only like a grandma to me, but she helped myself and Patrick with some life guidance she seemed to always have the best advice and just wanted to see you succeed in what we call life.
A few things about Carolyn I will always remember is her smile, her smile was so loving, beautiful and sincere. Another thing about her I will remember is her story telling, man could she tell a story and tell it good she always made me laugh. The final thing I will remember is when she hugged me goodbye. She would always whisper something in my ear whether that was "Patrick picked a good one" or "You're such a sweet and lovely girl" Every time I hugged her I would almost cry and I believe that is what love is, she loved me and I loved her.
I will miss you so much Carolyn you left me and Patrick with many memories and I will forever be thankful that you and Harold were brought into my life

Chuck, Irmgard and Barbie are sending our sincere condolences to the family of Carolyn.
Dear Carolyn - We remember the fun we had on 4-H Trailrides with our kids and horses, so long ago.
Then we had more fun together at the Ridgerunners square dances. Enjoyed the lessons from you - such a fine round dance teacher/cuer.
Harold and you were the 'backbone' and guidance of our square dance club. You brought us joy and held us together throughout the many years.
We thank you and will never forget you.
Rest in peace dear Friend.

My Grandma Carolyn was the only grandma I had in my life and she will always remain #1 in my heart. She was the sweetest, most loving and caring person that never forgot a birthday and not to mention she always knew how to throw together a great feast for the whole family. One of my greatest memories is watching all my childhood memories on VHS tape and laughing with her at how innocent I was. My grandma had the greatest smile that could light up a room and make your heart warm and I’m thankful that you gave that smile to my mother because now every time I see mom I will be seeing you too grandma. Rest In Peace and we will meet again. I love you forever and always.

I was so saddened to hear of Carolyn's passing. She was a wonderful person and a great Round Dance Cuer. I always admired her for cueing when there were not very many women Round Dance Cuers at the time she was doing it. I guess she inspired me since I am a Cuer now myself. You are in our thoughts and prayers Harold. Our most sincere condolences from the Denver Area Callers and Cuers Association as well as Todd and myself.

I was 15 when Carolyn married my brother Bob. My father had filled for divorce from my mother which threw my family into turmoil. Carolyn stepped in and became my big sister.. She would sit and listen for hours to my teenage problems and concerns. She taught me so many things and I will forever love her. Goodby my sister, I will see you soon on the other side.
