Carolyn Louise Watts, 61, of Medina entered peacefully into eternal rest on March 18 at Absolut Care in Gasport following a courageous battle with cancer.
Carolyn was born on September 9, 1958 in Batavia into the loving family of David and Gerda “Sunny” (Martin) Watts Sr., joining her brother David Watts Jr. Carolyn was raised in Medina where she graduated from Medina High School, Class of 1976. Soon after, she moved to Washington D.C. where she pursued a career with the United States Government. She came to manage travel arrangements for numerous government officials including President Ronald Reagan. Carolyn left government service, entering the private sector. Family was the most important thing to Carolyn, which prompted her move back to Medina. She continued her new career once returning home as a Finance Manager in the automobile industry.
Here, she gathered often with her parents, brother, sister in law, nephews, niece and many aunts, uncles and cousins. Carolyn was the life of every party with her infectious smile and sense of humor. She made certain that members of her family and close friends were happy and healthy, often putting others’ needs before her own.
Carolyn was predeceased by her beloved mother, Gerda “Sunny” (Martin) Watts in 2010.
