Carolyn, affectionately known as Toni, spent most of her life between Ohio, Georgia and California. Carolyn was very wise. She never met a stranger and was always up for a good conversation. She loved being around her family. In her spare time, she enjoyed reading a good book, listening to jazz and watching the Lakers all while wearing one of her favorite caps and enjoying a good drink.
