Karolyn was a 1960 graduate of Mississinawa Valley High School where she participated in many school activities.

She also volunteered for the Adult Literacy Program at Greenville High School. Her passion for photography led to always seeing her with a camera. Her love of family, church, community, travel and jobs kept her busy with this passion.
