May the family find comfort in fond memories and in knowing that God is "near to those that are broken at heart; and those who are crushed in spirit he saves."

Carolyn was a powerful and positive presence in the Geography Department for years. From June of 1972 when I first walked in the door she was friendly and competent. Carolyn made things work and encouraged all of us to do our best.We were all "family" to her, or so she made it seem. It is good to be reminded of her wonderful qualities when just weeks ago Professor Simoons of the old geography department gave $40,000 to the city library to build its geography collection. I remember Carolyn's ability to bring out the nicest qualities in people. May she rest in peace.
