Carolyn was my wonderfully sweet, godly cousin. We connected more in our latter years and enjoyed stories and photos of our friends and family – many who are no longer with us. We also shared a love of our upbringing and the way our life was that is so different than the way it is today. I am so grateful that she was my family, we had time together and happier still that we shall see each other again in that sweet by-and-by. Know that I am already missing You. Love You, Carolyn, Love Dare
Carolyn Queen Rexrode was a lifetime friend of mine. We grew up together in the Crow Hill section of Valdese and shared classes in all the schools in Valdese. After graduation, I enjoyed sharing the good times with her at the Valdese High School Reunions we have had. I will always remember Carolyn as a great friend.
I remember and had Mrs. Rexrode as a substitute teacher at Plano, IL. Schools.
I attended school, played sports, and graduated with her son Mark. Thoughts and Prayers go out to the entire Rexrode family.
I have so many happy memories of your mom. Sheila and Mark you are in my thoughts and prayers.
