Karolyn loved all kinds of music and loved to dance. She even owned her own dance studio. Karolyn also had a beautiful voice and loved to sing, especially with her sisters. After her retirement, she kept busy planning charitable events and participated in many humanitarian efforts.You could often find her with her family at a local care center or fostering kittens that needed a temporary home. She was instrumental in getting over 150 respite DVDs into homes of Alzheimer’s patients that were being cared for by loved ones.Her passion for spreading love and healing through music continued during the pandemic.
