On Sept. 21, 1945, Carolyn married the love of her life, the late William V. Lewis. Carolyn had a passion for any sport and a playful, competitive spirit. Carolyn loved playing bingo with her friends and took any chance she got to go to play. She was the first female to show a cattle project at the Jackson County Fair and she encouraged her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren to be active in the 4-H program. More than anything, Carolyn loved her family. Anything she did, she did with love, whether it was baking her famous chicken noodles or working in her garden.

Visitation will be Wednesday, December 21, 2022, from 11-1 at the Lewis & Gillum Funeral Home of Jackson. Funeral services will immediately follow at 1:00 with Kevin Green officiating. Burial will follow in Horeb Cemetery. Carolyn’s final wishes were that donations to Horeb Cemetery Association in Oak Hill are to be made in lieu of flowers following her death. Donations may be made to Horeb Cemetery Association c/o Don Dempsey, 409 Franklin Valley Rd., Oak Hill, Ohio 45656. Online condolences may be sent to
