Carolyn Francille Folkins, 79, of McMinnville, OR, passed away peacefully at home with her husband, Kent Folkins
Carolyn was born in Sidney, Iowa to Walter and Lucille Glasgow on September 17, 1937. She went to high school in Bellevue, Nebraska and graduated in 1954. Later, as a wife and mother, she attended college to study nursing, but had to take leave of her studies to care for her son who fully recovered from a rare and serious illness. Carolyn and Kent have called McMinnville home since 1971. Both of their children graduated from McMinnville High School.
Carolyn retired from Quest Communications Company in Corvallis, Oregon where she was a telephone operator for many years. She especially enjoyed connecting international marine calls and received numerous commendations.
Carolyn is preceded in death by her parents, Walter and Lucille Glasgow. She is survived by her husband, Kent Folkins of McMinnville, OR; her sister Ralane (Glasgow) Reis of Dayton, WA; her daughter Lori Fox of Gold River, CA; and her son Danny Fox of Lafayette, OR.
Carolyn requested no services and her wishes were honored. The family wishes to extend their gratitude to Kindred Hospice for their support in her final days.
