She was a graduate of Martins Ferry High School. Carolyn was a loving wife to her predeceased husband, Malcolm Thomas and devoted mother to her children, Stephanie Ramage(Boca Raton, Fl), Mark Thomas(Boca Raton, FL) and Trevor Thomas(Fort Lauderdale, Florida.)

She was a proud and loving grandmother to Connor Ramage(New York, NY), Natalie Ramage(Orlando, Fl), Brady Thomas(Boca Raton, Fl), Miranda Thomas(Boca Raton, FL), Zachary Thomas (Fort Lauderdale, FL) and Matthew Thomas(Fort Lauderdale, Fl).  She is survived by her siblings Larry “Butch” Duck(Martins Ferry, Ohio) and Donna Donahie(Wheeling, WV).

Carolyn enjoyed gardening, cooking and decorating her home.  One of her favorite things to do was to have family and friends over on Christmas Eve for a celebration.  She was born in Ohio, but made Medina, NY her home.  She supported the Medina sports teams and attended many community events.

Carolyn was a kind and gentle who loved to laugh with her family and friends.  She will be deeply missed by those who knew her.  The family would like to thank The Monarch at Coconut Creek memory care assisted living facility for making the last 2 and a half years her home.
