My deepest sympathies to Joyce, Linda, Kirk, Carrie, Kevin, Grandchildren and all the Family. I was shocked when Joyce called because Carolyn and I had just talked on Sunday afternoon (November 7). We talked about a lot of things from childhood times to Grandchildren to health issues, etc. Carolyn and I became elementary school friends and neighbors when her Family moved from Diamond Hill to Daniels Hill. From that point on we were buddies and our Families were friends. We did so many things together…so many cherished memories. As youths, we lived less than 2 blocks away so we were at each other’s home almost every day. One thing that I remember about both Carolyn and Barbara was their sewing skills. It always amazed me how they would make beautiful new outfits for school for the next day or a new outfit for an event that was taking place that same day. May God bless you and your Family. May your wonderful memories of Carolyn give you peace. Love, Farnese Hicks

I will always cherish those memories of us cousins growing up together as children getting together in the summer sharing stories playing games and just being together as a family. I will miss that laugh and smile. Love always, rest in peace. Carrie Ann

Continued prayers for GOD's peace, comfort and strength to each one as you celebrate the life, love and legacy of your beloved Carolyn. We rejoice in knowing she is living life more abundantly with her LORD.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
Linda Brown Hopkins left a message on November 18, 2021:
My fondest memory is when my big sister Carolyn taught me how to crochet and knit. I crocheted a blanket that my Momma kept on the living room sofa to decorate it for years. I was proud of that and appreciative Carolyn took the time to teach me how to do it. I also remember her helping my twins cook in the kitchen at my sister Joyce's house. I took a picture of that moment. It was a wonderful time with the sisters together. I will miss my dear sister, but this is a celebration of a new chapter with the Lord. Amen

The members of the Dunbar High School Class of 1965 send our condolences and prayers for peace and comfort for Carolyn's family and friends. She was a devoted and loved member of our Class and we will miss her very much. Whenever she could she participated in our reunions - which is really commendable given that it has been nearly 56 years since we graduated. We will cherish our memories of our times together. God is good!
