  1. I’m so sorry for your loss. I served with Carolyn at Willow Creek. When I first started as a volunteer she welcomed me with open arms. That was many many years ago. And, I of course never forgot how kind and loving she was.
    Praying that knowing she has returned home to her savior brings you comfort.

  2. Carolyn had such an impact on the Willow Creek culture, she and Bob blessed my life and I am so grateful for her investment in the lives of many people. RIP Carolyn.

    1. The Derby neighbors will miss Carolyn. Her faith often inspired me. Praying for her family who will miss her.

  4. Carolyn was my very special friend. We spent most of the week with each other. She used to walk with me, then later that day she took another walk. She had enormous energy. When I had my heart attack she was always there for me. I love her so much. We had so many plans for our future. She was such a strong and caring friend. She loved her family so very much. I know she is with the Lord. It is our pain now. Gods blessings to her wonderful family.
    with love, Jill Clemens

  5. Bob & Carolyn were our friends. They opened our eyes to the world by leading us on serving and sightseeing trips to Australia, South Africa and Germany through the Willow Creek Association.. We thank God for their servant hearts. They blessed many people through their lives. And now they are HOME! Praise God!
