Carolyn was born on March 26, 1943 in Jenkins County, Georgia. She was employed by Southern Bell and started her career as a switchboard operator, specifically for long distance calls. She enjoyed yarn work and cross stitching. Carolyn had a love for Christmas, and collecting Christmas ornaments. It was her favorite time of year, and that love extended throughout all seasons. Her greatest joy in life came from her family and being very involved with her Ingleside Baptist family.
Carolyn was preceded in death by her parents as well as her loving husband, Charlie Bartol Krulic, Jr. and her brother, Don L. Thigpen.
Left to cherish her memory is her loving family: her sons, Charlie Bartol Krulic, III “Bart” and his wife Laura, Bryce Krulic and his wife Brooke; her grandchildren, Charlie Bartol Krulic, IV “Quaid” and his wife Stella, Samantha Krulic, and Maxwell Krulic; as well as her sisters, Shirley Heck and Teresa Ann Jones.
