Carolyn was born August 20, 1940, in Houston to Jesse and Lorena Wegenhoft. The loves of her life were her children and grandchildren.

After the passing of her husband, Carolyn finished raising the children while attending and successfully graduating from the University of Texas at Tyler in 1988. Carolyn was a loving daughter, sister, mother, aunt, and grandmother who enjoyed traveling, antiquing, and spending time with her family. She will be greatly missed by all those whose lives she has touched.

Left to cherish her memory are her three children and grandchildren; son and daughter-in-law, Tom G. DeWitt III and wife D'Anne Ebarb DeWitt of Bacliff, Texas; daughter and son-in-law, Marlo DeWitt Senick and her husband, Craig Senick of Dallas; son, James Jeffrey DeWitt of Dallas; grandchildren Zachary Foxworth, Tom G.
