Carolyn worked as a secretary until 1985 when she retired to become a homemaker. She enjoyed volunteering in the gift shops of both Flowers Hospital in Dothan, Al, and most

recently Sycamore Hospital in Miamisburg, OH.

She was preceded in death by her husband Bill, her parents, sisters-in-law Sue Hoskins and Pat Gibbons and niece Alayna Wylie. She is survived by her daughters and sons-in-law Karin and James DuMond of Indianapolis and Kristin and Dan
