To know her, was to be loved by her. Her love for gardening will be remembered by so many of her friends and family. She developed a ‘green thumb’ to care for the plants that she would simultaneously gift to her loved ones. She was ‘like a mom’ to countless family and friends and cooked for anyone who visited her home. Carolyn was an example of a woman driven by her purpose and faith in God, as she professed her life to the Lord as her savior at an early age. She spoke highly of how much she loved her church, Faith Outreach in Clarksville, TN. She will be missed by all the lives she has touched and encountered.
Carolyn had a way of always challenging those around her to be the best version of themselves. Though she had a tough exterior, she had a heart made of gold. Carolyn’s legacy will live on forever through the many stories she shared and the memories of those who had the opportunity to know her and love her.
