So many memories over the years with Carolyn growing up in a family of 10, each and everyone played such an important role in our personal lives. A truly loved sister who will be very missed. Hearts go out to her children who took the time to listen to her needs and understand what she needed in this stage of her life and did this out of love for their mother. Thanks so much for taking care of our sister. She was truly blessed with her children and family. Robert and Joyce Haynie.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Carolyn's family and friends during this time. I have so many memories of working with Carolyn at Buehlers, and even beyond that. She treated me as a daughter and even more, my daughter Montana as her granddaughter. She was loved by so many, and will be missed dearly.

Oh, dear Carolyn, in our earthly estimation, you’ve meandered forward and away to heaven too soon for us that remain. I will miss you ma’m; rest well and be joyful in His house and presence.

I extend my sincerest condolences to all of Carolyn’s wonderful family at the departure of this amazing woman, wife, mother, sister, aunt, cousin, friend and neighbor. She was truly a wonderful loving person and friend to me and I am deeply grateful for the gift of knowing her…

May the love of family and friends drawn closely together during these difficult days comfort and keep each of you. Peace be with you all... God bless.

Know how sad I am to just find our about Carolyn.  She was a sweetie   Patti Plummer Merkle and I are her cousins. (Dad was Mutt). Just wanted you to know that we would have been there at the services if we had known. I know our family is huge and we just didn’t see the obit until a high school friend told me this AM.   You are all in our prayers.  Much love to all
