Carolyn Helen Jackson was born on May 22, 1942, to Charles and Ann (Adamski) Walrod and she spent her youth in Bayonne, NJ. As a graduate of the Jersey City State College Education program, Carolyn moved out of the city with her college sweetheart, Paul T Jackson, and eventually settling in Raritan, NJ. Carolyn taught elementary and special education while raising two children. Additionally, she had a second career at AT&T using many of her teaching skills.
Carolyn radiated compassion, joy, and a serious Jersey attitude. She loved the Shore, murder mysteries, sewing, enjoying her garden and her many friends and family, all of whom will miss her sense of humor, her contagious laughter, and most of all, her guidance and wisdom.
Carolyn is survived by her daughter, Karen (James) Tvedt, and her son, Eric (Emilia Agrafojo) Jackson.
Carolyn is preceded by her husband, Paul; and her parents, Charles and Ann (Adamski) Walrod.
Carolyn lives on in the hearts and minds of all who were blessed to know her.
