Family and Faith was always first with Carolyn and she never knew a stranger. She was a 4-H leader and helped teach sewing projects. She was a Sunday school teacher and just loved to be "Mom Ott" to so many people. There was always room around her dining room table.

Her children and grandchildren were the light of her life. She touched all those she met with warmth, kindness, and compassion. Her faith in God gave her the strength to face the many medical challenges she endured. She planted an eternal seed of love that will bloom in our hearts forever.
