Carolyn was born in Takoma Park, Maryland on February 19, 1939 to Milton and Frances Mister. When she was 14, her family relocated to Florida where she attended Palm Beach High School. Following graduation, Carolyn went on to attend Duke University where she earned a Bachelor of Arts in History in 1960. During her time at Duke, Carolyn met her future husband, Clive Roberson, and they were married soon after graduation.

In 1964, the couple moved to Athens, Greece, in connection with Clive's military service. While there, Carolyn continued to teach history at the American School in Athens. They enjoyed their time in Greece immensely and spent every spare moment exploring archaeological sites and traversing all over Europe. They moved to Palm Beach in 1967 where they have since resided. Carolyn was a much loved wife, mother and grandmother and will be remembered for her endearing personality and ability to bring good humor to family, friends and strangers alike.
