  1. Condolences to her Family. She and Shannon had a Remarkable Bond that couldn’t be matched. Her Great Granddaughters will forever carry on the memory of her unconditional love she had for them.

  2. Carolyn was a true force of nature – a wonderful and courageous woman who will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved her.

  3. My amazing wonderful friend Carolyn of 36 years. To know Carolyn was to know one who was generous of heart. Always quick to laugh, absolutely authentically genuine.

    To have had a friend like Carolyn is a gift that I will cherish for the rest of my life. Always there in a difficult season, we would often end up laughing through our tears. Her faith was important to her and mine to me, it often kept us strong when we felt our knees would buckle. I look forward to seeing her again.

    Carolyn was a great friend to both my husband and myself. So for now it is just farewell, till we meet again sweet, funny, amazing and dearly loved friend.

    Love always,

    Kime and Judy Toole

  4. Carolyn, our friend for over 50 years. Love you, you will live on in our hearts. Until we meet again.♥️

  5. Carolyn was a wonderful lady. We worked together for many years when I first met her in 1986. I loved to laugh with her, she had the best sense of humour. When I’d ask how her granddaughter and great granddaughters were her eyes just lit up. I could see how much she loved them. My deepest condolences to her family, she is greatly loved and missed.

  6. Growing up with Carolyn as an extended family member brought memories filled with her contagious smile and laughter. She always was quick to give to others, and a joy to be around. Her generosity even gifted my childhood with a lovable and affectionate pet love bird. For fifteen years that bird she breed and raised, was an adored member of my family. I am honoured to have known her and will cherish the moments we shared.

  7. Dave and I met Carolyn through Jack Ferguson who was such a kind and loving friend of ours. Carolyn was so kind and genuine. We became instant friends. She was artistic, fun loving and laughed so easily. She adored her family and spoke of them often. Jack and Carolyn are together again and in our prayers. We love you Carolyn. Goodbye my friend.

  8. Janice. Sorry for the loss of your sister Carolyn. I have many fond memories of when you lived on Piccadilly Street. Dancing in your living room on our lunch break and racing as fast as we could back to school. Carolyn was such a good dancer. I am sure she is dancing with the angles now. Diane Stamp (Hetherington)
