Carolyn helped me settle in Keokuk many years ago and she was a wonderful neighbor to me and my kids. I visited with her last year and on the phone often and I will miss her dearly. I am glad she is with her Stacy now.
In my high school days she was like another Mom to me. I lived with her, Stace and Steven for a couple weeks before graduation. She was an awesome sweet person. She loved her kids dearly. She will be missed and I will never forget the good fun times we had. So sorry Steven for your loss.
Too much to write,love her,2nd much ok mom...cyndy
