Carolyn graduated from Springfield Technical High School, class of 1961 and continued her education at Holyoke Junior College in Holyoke, Massachusetts.
After marrying William Clyde Guerrin, the young couple moved to Fernandina Beach in 1971 and raised their family. Their family worshiped at First Presbyterian Church where she was active for many years. There she served as an elder and deacon.
She was also a member of the American Business Women’s Association and the Woman’s Club of Fernandina Beach. She retired from Ron Anderson Chevrolet/GMC where she was Bookkeeper for many years.
