You were my teacher, my mentor and a dear friend. You will always be a huge part of my teaching and singing. I was so very blessed to be your student. I am so grateful for everything that you shared with me. I have no doubt that the heavenly choir is singing more beautifully now that you are on board.

I'm sure you are enjoying the eternal sounds of celestial music Ms. Mawby. You forever changed my heart for music, thank you.

My admiration for Miss Mawby started when I was a teenager, and she would bring her Grand Blanc choir to a Sunday Morning service at Woodside church. I was in awe that anyone could get that kind of a sound out of a high school choir. She was such an awesome conductor.
I started college at U of M - Flint, the same year she started the music program there. I wanted so badly to be in her choir and because she was just starting the program, she took anyone who wanted to sing (I didn't have to try out, thank goodness!). After that, the first group was just grandfathered in, and when others had to try out from then on, we were in! The choir was wonderful. She worked us hard. She demanded perfection. She loved what she was doing, and when we put on a concert, we knew we were good, and that felt amazing. Christmas Tide will forever be the signature song, I will associate with Miss Mawby. When we sang that song at the end of a Christmas Concert, the music swelled, the voices swelled, it gave me and still gives me goose bumps.
You have left a legacy Miss Mawby. You are loved by so many and will be missed so much. Thank you for giving your talents to Flint, for loving and caring about people. I will forever admire you.

Flint's music community has lost a true gem. Her legacy is found in the hundreds of her students who carry on and the thousands who enjoyed her concerts over the years. We were fortunate to have her in our midst for so many years.

Carolyn was a great friend to me when I worked in the Music Dept. at UM-Flint. She was a wonderful influence in my life. We lunched together almost daily and I accompanied her and her choirs to several cities where they performed choir concerts. She was a perfectionist who never really knew just how special she was. But the rest of us knew and appreciated all that she had to give. She introduced me to her friends and companions, all of whom helped me develop and find my place and calling in life. Unfortunately, we lost touch when I moved away, but I have never and will never forget her. She was one in a million and the world is a lesser place without her. My condolences to the loved ones she leaves behind.
