Carolyn was strong in her faith and truly had a servant’s heart. She was an active member of Epiphany Lutheran Church for many years. Carolyn’s greatest joy came from spending time with her family and attending her grandchildren’s numerous events. She enjoyed gardening, picking berries, riding motorcycles and 4-wheelers, and anything that took her outside. Some of her fondest memories came from trips to New Braunfels with her family. Carolyn will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.
