In 1970, at the age of nine, Carolyn moved from the Cabool area to Marshall, Missouri. She lived there until 1984, and then moved to Gainesville, Missouri. In July 1996, she made her home in the Ava, Missouri, area, where she was living at the time of her passing.
She enjoyed teasing others and taking car rides, letting the wind blow in her hair. She also loved visiting with her family.
Everyone around enjoyed her loving personality. Her favorite snack was M & M’s candy, which she dearly loved.
Carolyn will be truly missed by those who knew and loved her.
She was preceded in death by her father, Bennie Iott; her mother, Paulette Iott Honeycutt; her grandparents, Avon and Voil Welton, Don Iott and Modine Truitt; and three uncles, Kenny Iott, Frank Iott, and Donnie Iott.
