Carlyne was one of those special people who spent her life making a difference in the lives of others. If a kid needed help Carlyne was there. If a coworker needed to learn Carlyne would teach. If an employer needed something done Carlyne would get it done. She hated the Limelight but she was always shining her light on the rest of us. Rest in Peace Carlyne you deserve it. Jim

I only knew Carlyne as a little girl - dear friend of my parents. What I remember is her love for sports - and I remember when she played the trumpet in church. I'm sure my dad coerced her! I reconnected with her for one brief moment in 2016 on the phone - still Carlyne! My sympathies and prayers go out to all those who loved her.

Carlyne was one of the young people in the Community Church in Grandview, when my husband, Clyde Record, was Pastor. We shared many good times with her. Clyde used to have her play her trumpet in church. She would try to get out of it, but usually did it. She was the best free throw Basketball player in the area.

So sad that I did not hear of her passing until tonight. I tried several times to find her after we lost touch many years ago. Loved her dearly.
