Carolyn Edwards Bartels, 74, died peacefully at home in the Berkshires surrounded by her loving family. Born December 9, 1939, to the late Genevieve and Morris Edwards. Living in the Hartford area for over 50 years, Cincinnati is where she called home, always a true "Mid-Westerner"! She loved the Kentucky Derby, the Indy 500, the Cincinnati Reds and the Cincinnati Bengals. While on the east coast, she enjoyed many family gatherings that included her children, grandchildren and her beloved great-grandchildren. Frequent trips to Hawaii with her husband Steve brought them both much joy. She had amazing culinary skills but most importantly she was "The Queen of Entertaining". She served as House Chairman at the Tunxis Club in Tolland, MA. She graduated from the former Hillsdale School, now Seven Hills Day School and received a degree in nutrition from Garland Junior College. She is survived by her husband of 53 years, Millard Stevens Bartels, children, Genevieve Sedgwick (David), James Bartels (Maureen), Elizabeth Pelletier (Timothy), grandchildren; Clayton (Kristen), Erica, Ellen, Mitchell and Abbey and her great grandchildren; Addison and Chase. She also leaves her beloved lab, Luke.
