Carolyn Stringer, 81, of Irving, Texas (Dallas Ft. Worth Metroplex) joined her Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and his Heavenly Father and her family members who preceded her in death. She passed away peacefully on a Friday evening November 29th, 2019. She was born on September 12th, 1938 in the small southern town of Bainbridge, Georgia, to her father John Harvey Crawford and his loving wife Manassie. She was the youngest of seven siblings. She is survived by her loving husband of 54 years, Mr. Bob Stringer, retired Master Sergeant USAF and a 32nd Degree Mason; twin daughters Laura Jean Stringer and Linda Dee Stringer; Grandsons Brandon Allan Stringer and Zachary Ryan Stringer; great-granddaughters Reagan, Brielle, and Callista Stringer.
Carolyn’s greatest love was being a mother and housewife. After her twin daughters graduated high school, Carolyn returned to her professional life working for GTE as a VP Executive Assistant for many years before retiring. Carolyn was a true Southern homemaker in every sense of the word and she always impressed everyone with her superb attention to detail in everything she made, or refurbished. She was incredibly talented and took great pride in doing things perfectly. Her hobbies included; crocheting, gardening, cooking, traveling, reading and what she enjoyed most was spending time with her family. As a Southern Georgia girl who grew up on a farm she could descale freshwater fish, such as Rainbow Trout, for big family fish frys. She made the best Salmon patties, Collard greens, and homemade chocolate cake with white butter icing. Everything she cooked or baked was out of this world delicious.
Carolyn was often accused of being selfish, but she would reply “only for my family”. Family was her priority in life, everything else was second. What we treasure most of all was her unconditional love and always providing a soft shoulder for our tears, however her words of wisdom always lifted our spirits and put us on our feet again. Our shared memories of her and her pearls of wisdom will stay with us always. As a Christian woman, faithful wife, loving mother, dutiful daughter, devoted grandmother, playful Aunt or trusted friend, we are all grateful to Almighty God for such a strong woman to call on when needed. She will be sorely missed on Earth, but welcomed by her heavenly family with open arms.
