    I am so sorry to hear of Carolynne’s passing. I got to know her this past year while working together with her on the Hepworth Christmas Crossroads Committee, she was a great lady and will be missed by so many. Thinking of you all at this very sad time.

    I remember she always seemed to be laughing or smiling when I saw her. She was always super nice and I’ll remember that about her. Not one bad memory about her.
    RIP Aunt Carolynne ❤

    Our first meeting was when Carolynne took her boys on there first camping trip at Sauble Beach.
    From then on we remained friends. Carolynne was a kind and caring, gentle soul, always giving and never asking for help. Keep your memories close to your heart as she will always be in ours. Fly with the Angles and rest in Peace. Sheila Martin

    I will always remember your Mom for her kindness and generosity that she extended to my parents. The friendship they had.

    I know that when visiting your family home there would always be an offer of a cup of tea and a time to chat and laugh. Oh that laugh, I still hear it. Your Mom was always so welcoming.

    The family, friends, and community have lost a gem and the heavens have gained one.

    Our deepest sympathy
    Norman and Nancy

Her faith in Christ and her commitment to the church was praise worthy. May the grace of God and the love of God’s people help you throughout your grief journey.
    Peace be with you as you celebrate Carolynne’s life today.
