To Carolyn’s entire family, especially Susan and Shirley, my very deepest condolences. At age 15 when my father, my hero, had passed and I escaped my home to cry alone in the backyard garden it was Carolyn Claydon who magically appeared to put an arm around my shoulders and encouraged me to “just let it all out”. She was so indescribably kind. My heart weeps now for her, for all of you. And yet I am heartened by memories of her very beautiful, understanding smile which expressed more than words ever could. Bless her and bless you all.

My sincere condolences to Carolyn’s family. My memory of Carolyn while exchanging the peace on Sunday morning at the Church of the Ascension is the pure bright blue of her eyes.

Margie, Susan, Steve, and families, our family sends deepest condolences. I have many memories of Carolyn and her little dog, and of spending time together discussing teaching. Her love for her children and grandchildren was always clear, as was her sharp wit. Hugs to you all.

To Susan and Shirley Anne, Margie, Susan and Steve and your children – blessings and peace be with you all! I, too, loved your Mom, even though great distances separated us most of the time. 🥰.

Carolyn the only grandparent I really got to see. Her and I were very close and alike in many ways. She was very kind-hearted and I’m extremely thankful for all the great memories I had with her. Although it may be hard to let go, we’re all thankful she is at peace and is no longer suffering. Over the course of 85 years she touched a lot of hearts. I send my deepest condolences to all her family and friends. I love you so much Bita. ❤️💙

Stephen, Margie and Susan – We will be with you in spirit today for the visitation. Sending our love..
Susan & Michael
