She was born May 31, 1942 in Douglas, Georgia to the late Weldon and Dora Worth Adams.  Carolyn was a devoted woman of God and an active and faithful member of St. George Church of God.  She was known for her devotion to her church and family.  Her love and kindness gave her the title of “Granny” to many.  She loved to cook and was best known for her coconut cake and famous creamed corn.  Her heart was not ready to leave us so soon, but her body and spirit was ready to be with Jesus.  Her last words now would be to the many grieving, is to wipe your tears and celebrate her going home.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her daughter Linda Gail Kirkland Gay, 4 brothers and 4 sisters.
