  4. Linda Calhoun Lynes says:

    Carolyn was a longtime member of Alpha Tau Chapter of Delta Kappa Gamma, an international society of outstanding women educators. I am fortunate to also be a member and considered Carolyn a mentor. She and my mother, Clarice Calhoun, had been members from the 60’s when I was initiated in 1977. Carolyn was always quick to volunteer, to offer advice, to lend her expertise and share her experience. She was an outstanding teacher and a good friend and I will always cherish the many, many talks and rides we shared. She was a true Southern lady and will be missed by many.

    Sandy, Camille, and David,
    so blessed to have known your mom. She and I would often bump into each other around town, and often reminisce about the “good ole days.” We were all so blessed to have the childhoods we had…and I was personally blessed to have known your mom and dad…appreciate all they did for me.

    You all will be in my prayers.
