Carolyn won an award and a plaque for a poem that she wrote called The Man I Desired. She was a loving hard-working Mother. She worked in childcare over 30 years. She LOVED all exotic big cats and animals in general. She also loves music, writing, art and doing puzzles. Our mom loved card games and she won 1st place playing Bid Wiz and came in 2nd place in a spade tournament. Our mother also loved to dance and everybody knows that her favorite song was the Atomic Dogg, by George Clinton. Most of all she loved spending time with her family. Her legacy lives inside of all of us and even though she is our mom she always gave advice and treated everyone with respect and made a lot of friends her family.
