She began her career at Superior Oil where she also studied and earned her C.P.A. She lived in Houston area for the next thirty years. Her declining health brought her back to Beaumont and the Crystal Beach area the remainder of her life. She died peacefully at her mother's home, with her family by her side. She possessed many talents and interests throughout her lifetime. She was quick witted, intelligent, an avid reader, collector, an amateur bible scholar, family historian and photographer. Carolyn began collecting rocks in childhood, mounting and identifying each one; she went on to collecting seashells and paintings of historic lighthouses. In early adulthood she traveled the United States camping and touring historic lighthouses. She was a loyal and ferocious Dallas Cowboys fan. She had the ability to develop rapport with many people of all age groups. Carolyn loved nature and everything about Crystal Beach.
