Carolyn loved planting flowers - her favorites were buttercups and dogwoods. She also enjoyed sitting on her porch watching the birds and fishing (especially on Easter Monday). Carolyn liked eating popcorn and chocolate and sipping her tea with LOTS of lemon. Her favorite color was green, she listened to Elvis music often, and her hobbies included driving to Dollar General in Richfield multiple times a day and eating supper at Richfield park. Carolyn loved holiday traditions such as dying Easter eggs and going to see Christmas lights. The highlight of her week was always spending time with family.
Hartsell Funeral Home of Albemarle is serving Carolyn's family.
