Carolyn worked as a CNA before going to school and getting her LPN licenses in 1980 at Olney Hamilton Hospital. Carolyn enjoyed working in places like New Mexico, Texas, and Georgia. She really enjoyed working in the Nursing Homes. That is where she got the most joy.
She loved her family and enjoyed visiting them. She loved going to church and singing for the Lord. At one time, she was part of the CGMA and she and Terri got to perform in Phoenix, AZ.
She enjoyed painting and drawing pictures for her family and friends. At the age of 75, she finished taking classes and received her Doctrine Degree in Ministry through Trinity Bible School and Seminary. She was the Lead Pastor and she served on the Board of Bloodbought Ministry.
She was a blessing to everyone that she met.
