Carolyn lived her life enthusiastically and passionately. She was an
exceptionally caring wife and mother who enjoyed the challenges those roles
presented. In addition, she became an accomplished musician and composer; an
educator of elementary through college levels of Spanish, English, and art; a
popular retreat and conference speaker on matters of faith, prayer, and Bible
Study; an author of two books; a genealogist; and a highly respected artist.
Carolyn enjoyed using her leadership skills in churches and community
organizations of many kinds. Her most recent book, Fireflies in a Jar: Stories
of Growing Up in Austin, 1938 - 1956, reveals her vibrant, adventuresome, and
creative spirit.
