Carolyn graduated from Northside High School in May of 1955.
After her marriage, Roy and she lived in Lometa and Lompasas, Texas. In 1958 they moved to Oklahoma, where Roy was an instructor at the Federal Aviation Academy.
They temporarily moved to Poughkeepsie, New York, for about five months and then returned to Oklahoma to resume work at the academy. They also moved to Jacksonville, Florida, for a short period of time and then again returned to Oklahoma to further train other technicians in Roy’s work.
Carolyn gave birth to Charles Ray Rogers on April 14, 1959, in Ft. Worth, Texas; Billy Carroll Rogers on Oct. 26, 1960, in Ft. Worth, Texas; and Russell Lee Rogers on Dec. 18, 1962.
She is survived by her husband, Roy; sons Charles and Russell; a granddaughter and two great-grandchildren, which she cared for but very seldom saw because of the split between Charles and his first wife. She is also survived by her sister, Jane Whitley of Ft. Worth, Texas.
She is preceded in death by her son, Billy, who passed away during the winter of 2002.
