We were so sorry to hear of Carolyne's passing.
Mom felt especially bad that she didn't see the notice in the Ottumwa Courier before the service had already happened so she wasn't able to attend. Mom was quite shocked as she didn't realize Carolyne had been ill. She and Carolyne often exchanged letters, calls (in earlier years) and even Christmas cards as late as 2018. My husband and I used to pick cherries at Carolyn's home.
Just know our thoughts and prayers are with all of Carolyne's family.
