Carolyn WeeksFebruary 15, 1935 ~ August 28, 2017 (age 82)
On Monday, August 28, Carolyn received an invitation from a higher power she just couldn’t refuse; an adventure from which she will not be returning. Her work here is complete, and her battle with pancreatic cancer is over. This adventure comes full circle with reunions of family and friends, which she has not seen for a very long time. This exciting journey is just in time to celebrate her 60th wedding anniversary with the love of her life; Gene on August 31.
Carolyn (82) was born to the late Jesse and Laura Kinsey on February 15, 1935 in West Alexandria, Ohio. She is preceded in death by her loving husband Gene Paul Weeks; her parents; her brother and sister-in-law Paul & Vi Kinsey. She is survived by her children and their spouses Pam & Dan Dalton of Troy, Jeff & Lisa Weeks of Pleasant Hill, Beth & Dave Dalton of Troy; grandchildren Natalie & Aaron Gibbons of Troy, Alex Dalton, Whitney & Zack Whitehead of Troy, Victoria “Tori” and Jessica “Jessie” Weeks of Pleasant Hill, and Noel, Brenden and Connor Dalton; great grandchildren Troy, Paxton and Maddox Whitehead of Troy, numerous friends and family whom she loved dearly.
Carolyn attended Earlham College and Miami Jacobs Business College. She worked at Frigidaire and Goodrich shortly after her marriage to Gene but was mostly a homemaker. She was a member of the Pleasant Hill Church of the Brethren and served at various times as treasurer, church board member, and deaconess and sang in the choir. For over 22 years, she spent the winter months in Florida with Gene. She enjoyed cooking, baking, serving, gardening, bus tours, volunteering and working in the office at the Miami County Fair and making candy at Christmas. Most of all she enjoyed spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren. Most notably she was a wife and a mother who took great pride in her home and family. Her love knew no boundaries and her doors were always open. Carolyn’s infectious laugh will always be remembered. Her unconditional kindness and graciousness to anyone she met sets a true example for how she lived her life. Carolyn’s sense of humor, twinkle in her eye when she smiled and her sense of new experiences is something that will be missed by all. A celebration of life service will be held 10:00 AM Saturday, September 2, at the Pleasant Hill Church of the Brethren, 300 E. Monument Street, Pleasant Hill, with Pastor Nick Beam and Lynda Adams officiating. At Carolyn’s request, a pie and ice cream social will take place at the church following the service. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Hospice of Miami County.
