She was a communicant of the Diocese of Springfield, worshipping at Our Lady of Sacred Heart, then former St. Matthews Church in the Orchard and later Sacred Heart Church on Chestnut Street.  Carolyn leaves her daughter with whom she made her home, Judith Perigord and her husband Richard of Longs, SC. and a son, Gary Tebbetts and his wife Jean and their children, Charles and Emily Grace of Delmar, NY.
