Carolyn spent most of her younger years in Jasper, Ga and later moved to Woodstock, Ga, but finally settled in Marietta, Ga with her husband Bruce Swann. She began working at the Atlanta Journal Constitution as a paper carrier and retired 25 years later in 2007 as a Circulation Manager. Her relentless love and caring for her family was first and foremost during her life. She was a giving soul to anyone in need, as well as, having a passion for wild life and flowers. She was always placing other’s needs, wants, and desires ahead of herself. She was a small woman with a big heart. If you met her and got to know her, you loved her unconditionally. She battled serious medical issues for much of her later years and won the battle in most cases, until the Lord gave her wings and took her home.
