Carolyn June Gavin Notice
Gavin, Carolyn June Age 81, passed away on April 13, 2014, at her home in Fort Myers, Florida. A long time New Berlin resident, she was born on March 4, 1933 in Port Wing, Wisconsin to the late Amos and Bernice (Van Hollen) Mitchell. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her brother, James. Carolyn's love of theater led her to serve as director, actor and board member for the New Berlin First Nighters, a community theater that presented a number of musical and comedic productions throughout the 1960's and 70's. She went on to serve as executive assistant for El Dorado Graphics, a firm established by her husband, John E. Gavin. A lure of travel led to trips around the world for Carolyn and her husband. Left to cherish and honor her memory are her husband of 60 years, John; sons Jerry Gavin, Terry Gavin (Tom), both of New Berlin, Jeffrey Gavin (Edgar) of Chicago, Catherine Ann Briscoe of New Berlin; sister Susan Grahovac (Peter) of Waukesha; and grandchildren Gavin and Brittany Briscoe. A Memorial Gathering will be held at HOLY APOSTLES CATHOLIC CHURCH, 16000 W. National Ave., Saturday, May 24, from 8-9:45 AM. Memorial Mass 10:00 AM.
