Carolyn Grace Grieve Obituary
CAROLYN GRACE GRIEVE

Carolyn Grace Grieve, 84 of Oroville, went to be with her eternal sweetheart, Howard, on May 25, 2011. Carolyn died peacefully at Oroville Hospital. She was preceded by Howard, who died March 4, 2011.

Carolyn was born to Willis and Lulu D. (Carpenter) Hardy on Jan. 17, 1927 in Corning, CA. Carolyn was born the middle child of nine children. For all her life, she told fond stories of the love and adventures that she and her brothers and sisters had growing up in the farm community.

In 1946, Carolyn married Howard, a neighbor, whom she had met at age 4. Married for 64 years, they spent the last 55 years in Oroville. A homemaker most of her life, Carolyn also enjoyed many years as a teacher's aide in Oroville schools. Howard and Carolyn raised twin daughters, Louise and Linda; they were most proud of their three grandchildren, Joseph, Amanda, and Brendon. Thanks to Howard's love of computers and Skype, they were also able to meet and visit with their great-grandchildren, Bridget and Angus in Australia.

Carolyn is survived by daughters, Louise (Eddy Rowe, "my favorite Australian son-in-law"), Australia, and Linda (Ron Scott, "my favorite American son-in-law"), Oroville; granddaughter, Amanda (Bill Jones), Canada; grandsons, Brendon Rowe (Julie), Australia, and Joseph Scott, Oroville; great-grandchildren, Bridget and Angus Rowe, Australia; sister, Betty (John Jacobs); brothers, Everett Hardy (Marilyn), and John Hardy (Sue); and many nieces and nephews. Family was everything to both Carolyn and Howard. They will be missed by family and friends. Our sadness is eased by our joy for their eternal togetherness.

Per Carolyn's wishes, there will be no services.

Memorial donations can be made to the SPCA.
