Enjoyed many years of friendship when I was first employed at Camden High School. Carolyn, Lee Stoltz, Elaine Regan, Betty Sauer and myself were the clerical staff at that time. We enjoyed many good times. Sad that these ladies are all gone now. Carolyn always had a smile and an encouraging word to offer. May she Rest In Peace as she joins her beloved Jerry.

So terrible sorry to read about Carolyn's passing. I knew her for years when I
lived across the street from her years ago. I remember visiting her when I was
back in Camden visiting with my sister. I live in California now. Again I send my condolence.

I am so sorry to read of Carolyn's passing. My thoughts and prayers are with her family. Carolyn use to ride back and forth to Griffiss Air Base in Rome, NY with my sister Marie and I before she went to work at the school. Again my deepest condolences to all of you.
