Carolyn was member of Comite Baptist Church for many years and taught in the youth department. Now a member of Zoar Baptist Church. She was a member of the senior adult ministry and Ray Harrison’s Sunday school class. She enjoyed very much being a member of this class. She also loved making visits to the shut ins. Carolyn retired from East Baton Rouge School Board where she drove a school bus for 35 years.
Carolyn also loved teaching preschool and PreK for over 30 years at Central Early Learning Center and Zoar Baptist Church Parents Day Out. There was always a special place in her heart for every child and their families who she had a chance to teach. Carolyn’s favorite pastimes were spending time with her grandchildren where we will always believe she created the original dog pile. She loved painting on whatever she could get her hands on, Cypress knees, wooden eggs, Christmas ornaments, tennis shoes, purses, jewelry. She shared her love for painting with so many people. She was full of life and loved others to the fullest.
You could always find Carolyn and her best friend Beth Moak on their adventures or misadventures as their children would say. The only two who could find themselves on an Elvis Cruise in the middle of a hurricane. She loved their many road trips to who knows where.
