I am sorry to hear of Carolyn's passing. She was a good friend of our family here in Valparaiso and I have many fond memories of her. I can remember that Carolyn was a part of the bridge club along with my mother Jean. I recall the fun filled beach outings on Lake Michigan aboard the Dixie Belle; I can remember how we would sit on the beach to practice drawing waves. Carolyn always loved to organize the caroling outings at Christmas time to Chesterton and then back to Valpo for a delightful repast. She was always a good host. I was in one of her students in Biology class at Valparaiso High School and remember walking in the woods to select leaves for my leaf collection. I am reminded of sharing a cold beer and having a long conversation in her kitchen when I returned from the Marines. I can't recollect what we talked about, but I was aware that she was happy that I had returned. Those were golden days filled with glimmering memories. I can just imagine now, Carolyn driving off into the sunset in her classic Volvo.
