Mrs. Carolyn was born on July 31, 1944, in Screven County Ga and attended Richard Arnold School. She went on to meet Will Harris Jr. in 1968 and they married on June 29, 1970.

Finally putting roots down in Rincon Ga, she worked in retail at Friedman Jewelers for many years. She was a member of the Pentecostal church and loved the Lord. She loved cooking, enjoyed reading, putting together puzzles, antiquing, and working on her flowers in the yard.

Survivors include: her son and daughter-in-law, Willard Weaver Harris III and Heather Harris; grandson, Willard Weaver Harris IV; sister and brother-in-law, Faye and Bobby Strickland.
She had a love for animals and would always say I love you a bushel and a peck and a hug around the neck. Mrs. Carolyn will be missed by all who knew her.
