I just heard of Carolyn's passing today. I remember her from our Belding High school years and that smile she always had.

Today, I found out a treasured gift, a beautiful person who influenced me my entire life, and a big sister who I will never forget has died. I live in Texas now, but for thirteen (13) years Miss Mawby (as I always respectfully referred to her) rented my parents property on Fenton Rd. in Grand Blanc. I grew up spending many hours with Miss Mawby. Her early influence touched many parts of my life. She taught me, and gave me a greater appreciation of classical music, plays, musicals, and the choir she loved so much. It wasn't just her love of music, but the true love she had of teaching others her passion of music, and seeing their individual success in achieving their best! I was the only child and I had the pleasure to spend many hours with her through the years. As a big sister she taught me how to play basketball, chess, appreciate her fish aquarium, draw with charcoal, and enjoy the simple things of life. We spent many quiet moments just drawing landscapes, animals, and outdoor scenes together. She had me keep a sketch book, and I know she had one also. Although a great musician, not many knew how talented she was as an artist. I always made it a point to stop in and see Miss Mawby when I returned to Michigan. I last saw her within the last two (2) years. When I saw her she was moving a little slow, but still the passion she had of music, choir, country life, memories of my parents' place, gardening, her cat, the things I previously mentioned that she taught me in life, were all a brief respite of the fight she had with her illness. I know that when all the immediate sadness has gone, that whenever I here a classical song, or beautiful choir music at Christmas, I will get a little smile on my face, knowing that Miss Mawby is near to me. God bless you my sister, may God hold you near to his heart, because I will always keep you close to mine!

Carolyn Mawby made a huge impact on my professional life as a musician. She was a wonderful educator, performer and most of all, a wonderful person.

Miss Mawby was my Choir Director at GBHS for 4 years in the early 70's. She taught us to never give less than your best & that hard work & dedication produced amazing results. We won State competitions every year entirely because of her dedication. She alone was the most influential teacher I have ever had & I carry her lessons with me every day of my life. She was an amazing woman, deeply loved, appreciated & a great influence on so many people. She will be missed & never forgotten.

I was very fortunate to know Miss Mawby mainly through her high school choir workshops with U of M (I was Flint Central class of '85). She was personable, witty, brilliant, funny and, even on new acquaintance, someone you felt you could trust and rely on. My experiences with her workshops still inform my work ethic, and I long to be part of such a group again. She will live on in the glorious music of all of her students, their students, ad infinitum. We are truly blessed to have known her.
