My condolences to the family. Carolyn was such a fine lady! She helped out our choir a few times and occasionally blessed us by playing the organ at South Cayuga Community Church. We loved her musical contributions! Carolyn was very helpful and supportive of our initiative to sponsor a Syrian refugee family. She made several donations to them and they also are very grateful. When I had my breast cancer 5 years ago, it was Carolyn who wrote me a lovely letter telling how she coped with her cancer. As I said, a lovely person, who will be missed and remembered fondly.

Fondly remembered as my Junior Choir leader at Wesley United, Jarvis. I thought she was so pretty and instilled in me a love of music and singing. Carolyn returned to us later in her life and I joined our Senior Choir. Every practice was enjoyed, we had some laughs but we knew when it was time to sing. Never a confident singer I had the help of my choirmate Molly and Carolyn who even got me to sing a little solo with positive encouragement and praise. With Carolyn's encouragement I took a vocal music class. Many happy memories.
