She was born on March 27, 1936, in Queens, NY, the daughter of the late Isaac E. Harshbarger and Margaret J. (Evans) Harshbarger.

Carolyn was a 1956 graduate of Sayre High School and a member of Calvary Baptist Church. She was an extremely hard worker, working on the dairy farm she owned with her husband and as a Nurse’s Aide at the former Heritage Nursing Home, which is now known as Athens Health and Rehabilitation Center.
