Carolyn celebrated 43 years of marriage to Evan Strawbridge, and they called home to many places around the world before retiring in Kansas. She was a devoted mother to Sheree, who cherished her protective maternal love that passed through the generations from Carolyn’s mother on to granddaughter Katherine.
Carolyn also had a distinguished 32 year career in the Army civil service where she was highly respected in every duty station she worked. After her retirement, Carolyn and Evan enjoyed traveling the country in their RV. Carolyn was most known to family, friends, and colleagues for her kindness, loyalty, generosity, and warm smile. She will be dearly missed.
Carolyn is preceded in death by her parents and her brother Byron Smith. She is survived by her husband and daughter, and brothers Charles Smith and Felix Deloach.
It was Carolyn’s wish to be cremated and laid to rest at the Deloach family cemetery in South Carolina, where there will be a funeral service held on a future date to be determined.
