Aunt Carolyn will always be in my heart. As a child, my favorite place to be was at the "farm" with Aunt Carolyn, Uncle Sam, Jane, Glenn & David - and any other cousins who happened to be there. She was a big kid herself and she spent so much time carting us around and giving us the times of our lives. I always thought our time there was idyllic. Rest well, Aunt Carolyn. We miss you. Nancy (neice) & Harlow White

Cherrytown and Carolyn Waruch. You cannot think of one without the other. Just as with the passing of husband Sam, Mendy Samuels, George Schwab, Winston Van Kleeck, Frank Kortright and many others, another giant of the mountains has fallen. Her legacy is in place and blessed are we who got to know her and call her a friend.

Our dear Carolyn - or as our children say "our pool Nana", We will miss you and keep your memory alive forever. You taught us all how to ride the 'boop' and your love of eagles will continue to inspire us with courage and respect for all things. May your star burn brightly in the heavens. Love, Kristen, Douglas, Frances, Ethan and Katherine

Aunt Carolyn was the heart and soul of my time growing up with the Waruch family. I loved her dearly for her positive and cheerful approach to life. The Waruch families (Aunt Carolyn & Uncle Sam and Uncle Abe & Aunt Joan) were as close to me as anyone that I grew up around. I learned from Aunt Carolyn's love of life and love of family. It is what life is all about. We will never forget her passion and her spirit. Thank you Aunt Carolyn for being a part our lives.

Aunt Carolyn was like our second mother growing up on the dairy farm. Since Uncle Sam and Dad worked all the time, it was Aunt Carolyn and my Mom that took us everywhere and helped with all our injuries. Aunt Carolyn was one tough lady and we all loved her for it. She will live on my heart forever, along with Uncle Sam. Cherrytown will never be the same. Sending healing thoughts your way.

I know the memories the family has of Carolyn will help them through this difficult time. She will be remembered with her smile and the twinkle in her eyes. She loved a good joke and shared many. I will remember her at the children's games with her horn and cowbell! I am sure she is with Sam now telling him of all the news about the family!
