    You were a class act Carolyn. I hope you are listening to Harry Belfonte and feeling a soft Hawaii breeze. Love Gina & Aloys.

  4. Jim Sorenson says:

    Sorry to hear of Carolyn’s passing. She was my first supervisor at Pioneer Career & Technology Center, beginning in December, 1997. She was always helpful, knowledgeable, kind, and patient. We attended a couple of planning meetings at a career-tech school in the Cleveland area before I was even officially on the payroll at Pioneer, just to get a jump on what was important to the position I was hired for, which was also new to Pioneer. She was a valuable asset to Pioneer.

  5. Kathy Sabourin says:

    My thoughts and prayers are with Carolyn’s family. She hired me at Pioneer in 1997 and I will be eternally grateful to her. She was a joy to talk to and work with. I looked up to her and learned so much from her.

  6. Doug Zimmerman says:

    It was Carolyn who told me about the advantages of college hours beyond a Master’s Degree. Because of her I have a permanent teaching certificate. Thank you Carolyn. Throughout my tenure at Pioneer I have remembered her from time to time for her mentorship.

  7. Pam Bell says:

    My condolences to Carolyn’s family. Carolyn was a special lady and a joy to work with at Pioneer.

  8. Ann Cooper says:

    I am so sorry to hear about Carolyn. I knew her from Pioneer and she retired shortly after I began working at PCTC. She was one classy lady and she would always speak to you when she saw you. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you in the days ahead as I know you will have your good times and then the tears will flow, but that is alright. I truly understand what you are going through.

  9. Laureen Bettac says:

    We are praying for Carolyn’s family and are so sorry for their loss. I met Carolyn at church, and as a fellow musician, I LOVED to hear her tickle the ivories. She was always smiling and so full of wisdom and encouragement. What a great lady.
