Obituary of Carolyn Dennis

Carolyn S. Dennis, 63, of Allen, passed away on Friday, March 2, 2018 at home surrounded by family.  Carolyn was born in Salisbury on September 14, 1954, the daughter of the late Robert F. and Elsie Gravenor Smith also of Allen.

Carolyn was a graduate of James M. Bennett High School in 1972.  After completing beauty school, she joined her mother at “Elsie’s Country Beauty Salon.”  When the shop closed due to her mother’s health issues, Carolyn went to work for K & L Microwave in Salisbury.  She went on disability from there after 15 years due to her own health issues.

Carolyn was a wonderful support to both parents as they suffered ill health, and dearly loved her family.  She also loved her animals, especially her dog “Aggie.”  Her outdoor flower garden was also a source of pride for her. 

She is survived by a dear son, Ricky and his wife Debbie, who took wonderful care of her in those difficult last months and days.  Other survivors also include her brother, Fulton and his wife Tiny, as well as a nephew, Robert Fulton Smith III and his wife Michelle, many other extended family, and a very special friend, Nancy Eaton.

A service of remembrance will be held at Holloway Funeral Home at 501 Snow Hill Road in Salisbury on Friday, March 9 at 2:00 p.m.  Visitation will be one hour prior to the service. 

Arrangements are in the care of Holloway Funeral Home, PA.  Condolences can be expressed on their website,
