Carolyn Elaine Schweinsberg, 72, previously of Ransberg Avenue, Columbus, died Tuesday, April 2, 2013, in Mount Carmel Medical Center, Columbus.
Born March 2, 1941, in Portsmouth, Ohio, she was a daughter of William R. and Mary L. (Floyd) Schweinsberg.
She was a member of the Third Avenue United Methodist Church in Portsmouth, Ohio.
Survivors are her brothers and sisters, Billie Jean (Gary) Hunter of London, William R. Schweinsberg Jr. of Groveport, Ohio, Debra L. (Steve) Feustel of Galloway, and Timothy (Darla) Schweinsberg of Circleville; and aunt, Bessie (Elmer Lee) Schweinsberg.
She was preceded in death by her parents, William R. and Mary; sister, Beverly Ann; nephew, Gary Lee Hunter Jr.; and niece, Tiffany A. Conley.
Carolyn was never married, but shared so much love for her numerous nieces, nephews, family and friends. She never met a stranger. She had a passion to live life to the fullest and she loved people, conversation, Bingo, eating, and church (especially singing "Amazing Grace.")
She knew people at the Columbus West Park Nursing Home by their first name. She loved her dolls and stuffed animals and, in fact, slept with each one of them at night. They were her babies. She touched the heart of all who knew her and she will really be missed.
Friends may call at the EBERLE-FISHER FUNERAL HOME AND CREMATORY, 103 N. Main St., London, Ohio, from 10-11 a.m. Saturday, May 18, 2013. Services will immediately follow at 11 a.m. Pastor Sue McClelland will be officiating. Interment will follow in Somerford Township Cemetery.
Carolyn's family suggests that friends may, if they wish, donate a packaged toy to the funeral home in her memory. Her family will then distribute those toys in Carolyn's name to various hospitals for less fortunate children.
