CAROLYN DUKES SINCLAIR

Carolyn Aline Dukes Sinclair died on August 13, 2022. She left behind an unhealthy body and mind, and is now herself again, at home with Jesus.

Carolyn was born on December 28, 1941 to Gene and Aline Dukes. She grew up, lived in, and loved Savannah. As a very young wife and mother, she had to make homes in several other cities. She always did so with grace and maturity, well beyond her years. Always a career woman, Carolyn and her husband, Jack, operated Sinclair Business Machines for 26 years.

Carolyn was a loving and sacrificial mother and grandmother. One or both of her granddaughters literally spent hundreds of Friday nights and Saturdays with Gran. She was always available when her family needed help.

For many years, Carolyn served in several capacities at Cresthill Baptist Church and the Savannah Baptist Association. She loved the Lord and served Him well. In the Ruth Sunday School class, she was a teacher, friend, and mentor to many women over the years.

Those who will cherish memories of Carolyn include her husband of 41 years, Raymond Jackson “Jack” Sinclair, daughter and son-in-law, Carol and Terry Greenway; granddaughters, Kari Greenway and Kory MacPhail (Mark); great-grandson, Tristan MacPhail; brother, Richard Dukes; sisters, Sue Williams (Ben), and Janice Vaughn, and a number of nieces, nephews, and friends.

2 Corinthians 5:8
We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.

The family will receive friends from 6 until 8 o’clock, Tuesday evening, August 16, 2022, at Gamble Funeral Service – 410 Stephenson Avenue.

The funeral service will be held at 11 o’clock Wednesday morning, August 17, 2022, in the chapel of Gamble Funeral Service. Interment will follow at 2 o’clock in Forest Lawn Memory Gardens.

    Jack & Family,

    I am very sorry I just saw the notice in the paper yesterday. I would certainly have gone to both the reception and the funeral had I known in time.

    Carolyn was a very special person. I had dealings with her for many years through Sinclair Business Machines. She was always helpful, courteous, and prompt in returning my phone calls. It was always a pleasure doing business with her. Greg Vaughn was also an important part of the business. I was sorry to learn of his recent passing as well; but glad to have had the chance to know him too.

    She touched many peoples’ lives, and for the better. She will long be remembered and missed.
