    Carolina, the name i chose to call you over the years, what can i say to you, you were always a great friend at Highland when I first met you Late 70’s. You always helped me when I first started, You were my German friend with the love of Italian food. You would come over after work , as Grampa would love cooking for you. You would love to listen to his stories when you came over and you called him Gramps. When I had my 4 boys you shared each Celebration of their lives, baptisms, graduations. You came over each week on Saturday visits to the house to spend time with us and our friend Jill who I introduced you to. We would go on vacations together, to Cape Cod, Pennsylvania Amish Country to name a few. You were certainly the organizer of items in the trunk. 8 people with suitcases and coolers of food and you always managed to make things fit the lincoln. One Memory was being in waist high water in Nantucket Sound with the fish hitting our legs who would have thought maybe one of those fish could have been Jaws. The whale watch was another with your love of the water not caring the boat was swaying back and forth when the whale decided to come near the boat. We had many memories of our trips that were very special to our family.We were sad to see you move to Idaho but knew you would be with your family. We would check in with each other periodically by phone and continued the cards for Birthdays and Christmas. When you got the chance it was always nice seeing you when you came to Rochester for a visit. Although we were in separate states I’m sure you knew how much you meant to our family. The boys all called you Aunt Carolyn and even at their ages now still refer you by that name . We were all happy to have spent time with you , we will certainly miss you as we had hoped to see you this September . May your Sister Kathy , Niece Stacy, great niece Leah and Great Nephew Colton find peace that you are at rest, and i’m sure know how much you cherished them. Our Family sends our sympathy and Prayers to your sister Kathy, niece Stacy and Family. I will miss you my dear friend. Nancy and Meno

    The Reiss family lived next to the Schey’s on Bly Street for many years and were close friends. Carolyn was always a pleasure to be around and we remember many good times. She was always happy and fun loving. We haven’t had much contact in so many busy years but think of those fun memories often. RIP Carolyn❤️ Skip and Nora Schey

    We laughed , a lot and of course cried together. We shared the good times and bad. We loved to travel and I will never forget our Italy trip, and Arizona. You were considered one of the family. You were my maid of honor when I married the love of my life, Dan. You were their when the neices and nephews were born. When you did not show up at a family function they always asked where you were. You came and baby sat the kids with me, and you even babysat me when Dan went hunting or golfing. You will always be a part of my life and truely will never be forgotten my friend. Love Lynda Boyd, RIP my friend
