A Lancaster County native, she was a career employee of Bank of Virginia, whose bank name was changed to Signet Bank in 1986. In February 1998, the Signet Bank offices in Lancaster and Northumberland were acquired by Northern Neck State Bank. She held positions in all areas of banking, the last as vice president and manager of the Kilmarnock branch.

Civic minded, she served on several committee and service boards in both Lancaster and Northumberland counties. She was the first woman to have served in a public office in the Town of Kilmarnock as councilwoman of the Kilmarnock Town Council. In retirement, she acted as an election official to the Lancaster County Electoral Board and as a volunteer at the Lancaster Community Library, the Kilmarnock Museum, the Northern Neck-Middlesex Free Health Clinic and the Steamboat Era Museum in Irvington.

Carolyn enjoyed a full and active life, always looking forward to an early spring, as she loved her time gardening and being outdoors. She was a devoted mother, and a proud, loving, Grammy.

Her children will follow Carolyn’s wishes for a private memorial service. Expressions of sympathy may be made to the White Stone Baptist Church Cemetery Fund at 517 Chesapeake Drive, White Stone, VA 22578.
