She enjoyed playing bridge and looked forward to spending time on the green with her Spring Creek 9 Hole Ladies as well as being a gourmet cook.
Carolyn was beyond talented. She played the piano, painted beautifully and kept her garden immaculate. She made the most beautiful memories for her family. She enjoyed the simple pleasures in life, such as spending time in Capitola and in Santa Cruz for summers. She loved her family dearly and showed it at every opportunity. She will be remembered as a loving mother, grandmother and friend.
