She is also survived by a devoted sister, Judy Doggett Davis; two brothers, Greg and Ron Doggett; and many cousins, nieces, and a nephew. Her loving cousin, Betty Lee Stanley, also survives her. Carolyn's love for others, her compassion, and her radiant smile endeared her to everyone who was fortunate enough to know her.

Carolyn was a member of the Wyndham Club Commons Book and Garden Club and she cherished her friendships with members and neighbors.
