Obituary Condolences

Carolyn Lehmann 1920-2011 VALATIE, NY Carolyn Lehmann, died Tuesday, February 15, 2011. She grew up in Torrington, Conn., and married her high school sweetheart Walter Lehmann. She was predeceased by Walter in 2006. Carolyn was predeceased by her daughter Diane Lehmann Bairstow in 2008. Her son and loving caretaker, Dwayne Lehmann, lives in Tampa, Fla. Carolyn made a profound impact on the lives of hundreds of children throughout the northern Berkshires through her long and devoted career as a preschool teacher at Pine Cobble School. She spent 58 years at Pine Cobble, retiring in 2008. It was there that she shared her unfailing energy, warmth, love, patience, creativity and impeccable sense of style with all those who came in contact with her. Carolyn was a gifted teacher with an educational philosophy that has stood the test of time. She believed strongly that children need to know that you love them and that you expect big things from them. Carolyn was often known to say "the greatest gift we can give a child is time." The entire Pine Cobble community is deeply grateful that Mrs. Lehmann shared so much of herself with all of us. While Carolyn's death is an enormous loss, she will always hold a special place in our hearts and her legacy will live on in the good work of the many, many lives she touched. Carolyn's ashes will be put to rest with her husband's in Torrington, CT. There will be no public services.
