Carolyn passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, June 29, 2014 at the age of 93. She was born January 25, 1921 to Joseph and Agnes Wanek in Breckenridge, Minn. Carolyn retired from Scott Paper Co. in 1981 after 18 years. Our parents traveled extensively throughout the Western U.S. with the Old Time & Country Music Association. Mom's breads, cinnamon rolls and pies were fantastic and second to none. She was a founding member of St. Mary Magdalen Parish in 1959. She loved her garden and flowers. Carolyn was preceded in death by her husband, Arthur in 2001; son, Richard in 2007; granddaughter, Jenifer in 1986; and son-in-law, Michael in 2012. Carolyn is survived by her son, David, and daughters, Donna (Bob), Sharon and Susan; as well as nine grandchildren and 18 great grandchildren. The family appreciates the care she received and the friendships made at Emeritus at Silver Lake. Services will be held on Thursday, July 10, 2014 at 11 a.m. under the care of Purdy and Walters with Cassidy. The Graveside service will follow at 1:30 p.m. at Cypress Lawn Memorial Park in Everett.
