    Carolyn was a loving mother to her children, David and Allyson. She loved to travel, and when she wasn't she saw the world through her many books and magazines. She enjoyed coffee (forgetting it quite often in the microwave), ice in her wine, the ocean, seafood, and her cats. She fell in love with Edmonds the moment she moved there in 1988. She spent most of her time there sharing that love through her business, Northwest Royal Welcome, then as the founder and director of the Edmonds Visitors Bureau. Carolyn was a proud member of the Edmonds Daybreakers Rotary and served as its president from 2000-2001 She also organized their annual Jazz Connection jazz festival. Her favorite past time was telling friends how proud she was of her children. She will be greatly missed.
