Carolyn Marie Brown entered this world March 13, 1947, in St. Louis, Mo., the daughter of Robert D. and Edith M. (Robinson) Merritt. She grew up in Arkansas, where she raised her family and spent most of her life. Carolyn left this world at 15:43 on Jan. 25, 2021. She was 73. She will be greatly missed by her family and friends. Services will be scheduled in Arkansas at a later date.

Carolyn is survived by her children, Alicia Campbell, Sandy Pike and Dennis Brown Jr.; her grandchildren, Kacey Sellers, Keith Sellers, Dylan Brown, Stacey Batts and Doss Pike; and her great-grandchild, Dakota Brown. She was preceded in death by her brother, Danny Merritt.

Please direct contributions in name of Carolyn Brown to the Porta Caeli House, 2440 N. Harvard Ave., Tulsa, OK 74115. This wonderful organization helped Carolyn and her family during the last few days of her life on earth. Without this facility, the family would not have been able to spend time with her and say their goodbyes. COVID restrictions at her nursing home only allowed compassionate visits for two family members once she was close to transitioning. Carolyn’s family would like to pay it forward for the next family facing this very difficult journey.
