Carolyn was known to many as Joyce and CJ. She lived a full life and made lifelong friends. People often talked about her caring ways and if you needed something and she had it, it was yours as well. She was a very good cook and when she cooked it was guaranteed to be delicious and she would feed you as long as there was food to eat. She loved to play dominoes and cards (Pitty Pat) and was a fierce competitor. She loved spending time with her nieces and nephews, especially Tammy and Terri.
