Carolyn Ballentine, 70, of Tallahassee died Tuesday (8/15) at her home with her family at her side. A native of Nauvoo, AL, she came to Tallahassee in 1989 from Jacksonville. Carolyn was a person who enjoyed being with others and being able to help those who needed anything. She especially enjoyed family and traveled all over taking her daughter to swim meets. During the time she was in Jacksonville she served as a Girl Scout Leader. Carolyn also played softball and enjoyed reading.

Survivors include her husband: Sam; daughter: Tara of Tallahassee; brothers: John Horton, Mike Horton, and Gerald Horton all of St. Louis, MO; sisters: Sheila Mason and Gail Crumby also of St. Louis, MO.

Because Carolyn was a breast cancer survivor, the family suggests that friends who wish make a donation to the American Cancer Society, https://www.cancer.org/content/cancer/en_header.html in lieu of flowers.
