Carolyn was a Vice President of a bank in Wilmington where she worked for many years, later transitioning into a role as a Human Resource manager before retirement. In retirement, she enjoyed spending extra time with her family which she valued the most. She touched the lives of so many and will be greatly missed by all.

She will also be forever remembered by her brother and sister-in-law Al and Renie Rutkowski, her sister and brother-in-law Terry and Harvey Starr, her nieces, nephews and numerous other family and friends.
