Carolyn was a receptionist in the lab and x-ray department for Springfield Clinic where she made many friends due to her kind and caring nature.

She was very proud of her family. Her son is a teacher at Tri-City high school and her daughter is a cosmetologist. Her grandson Ian is starting college in the fall and has received a baseball scholarship while her granddaughter Falon is in Nursing training at Mennonite College of Nursing and will graduate next year. Carolyn also enjoyed spending time with her longtime Companion, Winn Ross, and going on trips and to classic car shows.

She was preceded in death by her parents; and one sister, Mary Lanterman Jett.

Carolyn is survived by her son, Tony; and her daughter Mary Wilson, both of Rochester; longtime companion Winn Ross; two grandchildren; one sister, Barbara Retzloff, several nieces and one nephew.
