Carolyn Jeanne Gage Obituary
Carolyn Jeanne Gage went to be with our Lord and Savior on Tuesday, May 24, 2011. Jeanne was born to Elvis and Mae Newman on Feb. 12, 1947, in Clovis.
Jeanne was a loving wife and mother. She was a member of Weed Baptist Church. Her love for the Lord was evident throughout her life. Giving and doing for others were her selfless acts and first priority. Her greatest accomplishment was the success of her children. Her second greatest accomplishment was becoming a nurse. She served Sierra Health Care Center for 13 years and was a valued employee. Painting and crafts were her favorite hobbies. Jeanne loved to take something old and make it new again.
