She was born February 5, 1935 to Robert C. and Ruth I. (Adams) Foster in Coldwater, MI. Carolyn was a Coldwater High School graduate and on October 22, 1965 she married Franklin D. Crabill in Steuben County Indiana who preceded her in death on March 4, 2011. Throughout her childhood Carolyn was involved in 4-H and enjoyed roller-skating. She harbored a generous heart as she worked as a Nurse’s Assistant at Coldwater Hospital early in her career. Carolyn continued to carry her caregiving nature throughout her lifetime always making sure to tend to the needs of her surrounding friends and neighbors. She was a strong willed, independent woman that liked to play bingo, dice, and go to the local music jams. She also held a talent for knitting and crocheting that she shared with her children and grandchildren as often as she could with decorative afghan blankets. Carolyn was spunky and social-she was the “Princess of the park” in her close group of friends and neighbors in Florida. Whether it was her home or her vehicle, from her Cadillac to her golf cart, clean and tidy was always of the utmost importance to Carolyn. She kept a special place in her heart for her pet golden retrievers but her greatest passion of all was her family. She will be dearly missed as mother, grandmother, great grandmother and friend.
Carolyn leaves behind her children Robert (Jane) Wolford of Leesburg, FL, Thomas Wolford of Bloomfield, MI, Diane Crabill of Battle Creek, MI, Vicki (David) Buck of St. Joe, MI, Annette (John) Lewand of Bolingbrook, IL; her 8 grandchildren Drew Wolford, Brett Wolford, Patrick (Tia) Weaver, Tami Jo (Dereck) Moor, Hannah Buck, Olivia Buck, Nicholas Lewand, Zachary Lewand; 4 great grandchildren Baya Moor, Liam Weaver, Delilah Weaver, Mitchell Furr; 2 nephews Robert J. Foster and Richard Foster and her best friend Debby Highsmith.
In addition to her husband Franklin, she was preceded in death by her parents, her granddaughter Heather Furr, and her brother Robert W. Foster.
