Carolyn sang as a soprano in the Quincy Symphony Chorus. Throughout the years, she was an organist at St. Peter’s Lutheran Church at Lost Prairie, Camp Point United Methodist Church, and Christ Lutheran Church.
     Her greatest pride and joy came from her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. She’ll be remembered for her big, radiant smile, and her beautiful soprano voice.
