The Guest Book is expired.
Carolyne was a friend to everyone. She adored her children and grandchildren, and they showered her with affection. Her favorite places were Big Bend and the family house at San Luis Pass. She hated flying and cockroaches.
Born on March 18, 1942 to Mabel Maude Reat Belson and Maynard J. Belson in Port Arthur, Texas, Carolyne graduated from Bishop Byrne High School and attained a master's degree in vocational rehabilitation counseling from the University of Alabama. She married Bob Fisher in 1965, and they settled in Houston in 1968. Carolyne served as a VRC prior to founding Arrowhead Gallery of American Indian Art. In 1982 she was diagnosed with breast cancer, which recurred in 1985. Carolyne closed the gallery to focus on treatment, and after recovery returned to counseling until her 2004 diagnosis.
The family extends gratitude to Dr. Karen Lu and APNs Shiney Kurian and Cathy Burke at MD Anderson for their exemplary care. Condolences may be posted on www.millerfuneral.com. Questions may be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
