carolyn was always a sweet & gracious lady, holding your hand while she talked to you, etc. she made such a fuss over 'pretty koren'. marie told me that when their girls were young and wayne was out on the truck, carolyn hated being home alone, & sometimes she had to have someone over, but begged them not to tell wayne,she didn't want to worry him. she was a tiny woman, and very crippled with arthritis at the end of her life. she had cancer, and was on the verge of death several times, her husband wayne fussed and worried over her, and was just an angel.
she was a snappy dresser. she loved her grandchildren and great grandchildren. she was just a very nice lady.
carolyn was an older sister of my uncle jerry haggard, and the great aunt of my husband kevin dailey, since she married his grandma marie dailey hass' brother wayne.
her daughter linda shroyer remodeled the house to meet her wheelchair bound needs after her mother died and moved in. i see her from time to time in mercer.
