Carolyn (Wells) Gulley
September 20, 1953 - April 7, 2014
Carolyn (Wells) Gulley, 60, of Caldwell, went to be with the Lord Monday, April 7th, after a courageous battle with cancer. She passed away at home surrounded by family and friends. She and her twin sister, Marolyn, were born Sept. 20, 1953 in Nampa ID to Ruth and Emery Wells. Carolyn and her 5 siblings were all born and raised in Nampa. She graduated from Nampa High School in 1971.
She was employed for many years by The Salvation Army, and volunteered many hours in church and youth activities.
Carolyn had two sons from a previous marriage, raising them as a single mom until her marriage to Terry Gulley in 2004. Together they raised Carolyn's two sons, Tyler and Jordan, along with their grandson, Christopher.
Carolyn was a very gentle, loving, strong Christian example to all who knew her. She enjoyed camping, fishing, reading, puzzles, and board games. She was also very involved in her churches over the years: The Salvation Army, Lakeview Nazarene and for the past ten years, Deer Flat Free Methodist. She loved being with family, especially watching BSU football games.
Carolyn leaves behind husband, Terry; sisters, Vesta Harvey, Barbara Gans, and Marolyn Wells, all of Nampa, Patsy (Greg) Schwanke of Meridian and brother, Donald Wells of Springdale, Arkansas; sons, Tyler Newton and Jordan Newton; step-daughter, Jennifer Gulley, and two grandchildren, Christopher and Tera. She was a loving aunt to many nieces and nephews.
