Carolyn Jane Guerrin

April 14, 1943 - June 22, 2018     Age: 75

Carolyn Jane Guerrin, age 75 of Fernandina Beach, FL passed away on Friday, June 22, 2018 at her home.

She was born on April 14, 1943 in Springfield, Massachusetts to the late Gordon Clifton Murphy and Edna Elizabeth Campbell.

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. She never met a stranger and knew everyone by their first and last names.  She would help anyone in need. She enjoyed traveling as well as going to plays and musicals.

She became the quintessential matriarch of the family, doting on her grandchildren. She loved to go swimming with them in the summer months. Carolyn relished getting phone calls from her family and was quick to let them know if she hadn’t heard from them as frequently as she thought she should. 

In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by her husband of 46 years, William C. Guerrin August 12, 2017.

Surviving family members include, her son James C. “Jay” Guerrin and his wife Tracy of Yulee, Florida; Grandchildren, Peyton Guerrin, Cova Guerrin and Brady Guerrin all of Yulee, Florida; sisters, Judith Hanstad and her husband Richard of Bend, Oregon, Linda Morris and her husband Kent of South Hero, Vermont and Janet Knight and her husband Stephen of Pawcatuck, Connecticut.

Services will be at 11:00 am on Thursday, June 28, 2018 at the First Presbyterian Church in Fernandina Beach.

    I knew Caolyn through ABWA for many years and at church. She was a dedicated volunteer in so many ways and especially loved her grandchildren. She was always interested in how people were doing and a good worker until the job was done.

    My prayers to her family and close gal pals at this sudden departure of a true Christian soul.

    I’m so sorry to hear of Carolyn’s passing. I have many fond memories of time spent with her years ago.

    Many thoughts & prayers for all of us who knew & loved Carolyn. This is a complete shock to me as we’ve been out of touch since I saw her last in Publix probably almost a year ago; or so……….maybe time flies faster than noticed! I worked with Carolyn for many years at Ron Anderson’s before they moved off the Island and recall many, many good times ( and some stressful lol) during our time together at the dealership. Carolyn had a way of making you smile even when you least expected to or wanted to. I am happy to have known & cared for her and so very sad to know that she is no longer blessing us here on Earth but is now watching over us from above – and at peace! God hold you close Carolyn – you’ll be missed by many. Wishing you comfort and peace >^,,^< Kathy
