Carolyn was best described as fun! She had an incredible zest for life and didn’t know a stranger. She was a true beauty so people naturally flocked to her and stayed because of her incredibly warm and fun personality. Carolyn was the best mother, gammy and aunt you could ever know. She put so much time and love into her relationships.
One of her greatest joys was working at her family owned business, Switzer Foods. She rose from clerk to sales to president and loved every role. She was incredibly proud of the company her parents built and happy to be a part of it’s success. She worked with many family members along the way and it was pure joy for her. She was loved as a leader and mentor.
She loved attending all the events her children and grandchildren were involved in. She took such pride in everyone’s accomplishments. She enjoyed telling stories of her adventures and one of her favorites was the story of her winning a Cadillac on the Casino Queen.
