My sincere sympathy to Scooties' family. We met when her parents moved to West Liberty and I would visit my Grandparents and Aunts and Uncles & friends every summer. Good memories

I taught with Carolyn for many years at Madison Southern and she was such a devoted professional. She was a strong advocate for teachers and education in general. I'll always remember her being our honorary assistant coach for the boy's basketball team when I was head coach. We won so the team insisted on her coming back for the same job at our next game. She loved it! Rest in Peace Carolyn.
