Eric and his daughter Autumn preceded her in death. Eric had three more children, Daymon, Talon and Tydus. Brian has a daughter, Brianna. Emily’s children include Alexis, Ariel, Dakota, Destiny, Damirah and Eric. Sherilynn shared in the love of Carolyn’s home. There are names too numerous to mention that have been blessed by the memory of her love.

Carolyn received her nursing degree in Enid, Okla. She worked many years serving others in the nursing field. She worked diligently helping every one she found herself involved with. Some of her interests were rock collecting, studying things of God’s amazing world, flowers, vegetable gardening, sewing, reading, and a talented painter. These gifts represent just a glimpse of her life.

Carolyn found God’s blessings, love and friendship attending Resurrection Church of God in Cache, Okla., Pastor Rev. Jim Myers.
