Carolyn Selby Bishop, 75, passed away peacefully in her home, in San Antonio, TX on May 20, 2024. Robert, her faithful husband of 54 years, was by her side. 

Carolyn was born in Amarillo, TX, on June 5th, 1948, to Amel and Kathryn (Peery) Selby Goss. She grew up in west Texas, and graduated from Robert E. Lee HS in Midland, TX, in 1966. She attended Howard County Junior College, and then BYU, where she met Robert. They were married in the Salt Lake City LDS Temple on Jan 29th, 1970. They spent most of their married life raising their children in Beavercreek, Ohio. Carolyn taught preschool and worked at the Beavercreek library for many years. She loved crafting and card making. She was involved in her church, and especially liked working in the children’s ministry.
