  • Thanks Carolyn for your great service and teaching at Pleasant Street! You always showed great care for me as a student there in the early 80’s. I will always remember you as a great caring person for the students and for that I am thankful! Prayers for your family!

  • Carolyn was always fun to teach with at Pleasant Street School. She was very creative and loved her students. I especially remember when the film ET became popular. Carolyn had bulletin boards up about ET with lots of activities to engage her class.
    She will be missed.

  • Love and sympathy to the family. We enjoyed Carolyn when she brought her mother to Waterford to worship with us. Blessings, Keith and Nancy Holtrey

  • I taught with Carolyn for several years at Pleasant Street. I admired her for several reasons, but the fact that she always had a calm demeanor is what impressed me the most. Carolyn had a quiet sense of humor. My sincere sympathies go out to all of her sisters.
