Carolyn was born on April 28, 1944 to Howard and Virginia (Nelson) Caltrider in Adair, Iowa. As a child she lived west of Menlo and attended Menlo School where she excelled at basketball and was her Senior Class Vice-President. On September 14, 1962 she was united in marriage to Merrill Adams in Earlham. The couple lived and made their home in DeSoto briefly, until they built their new home on their farm north of Menlo where they remained their whole lives. To this union three children were born: Terry, Kristi, and Kevin.

Carolyn liked to bowl and play cards. She loved to travel and camp. Carolyn and Merrill spent the winter months in Texas. Most of all she treasured time she could spend with her kids and grandkids.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Howard and Virginia Caltrider.

Carolyn leaves behind her loving husband of 56 years, Merrill; children: Terry (Dawn) Adams of Menlo, Kristi West of Yale, and Kevin (Brenda) Adams of Eagle Grove; eight grandchildren; 16 great-grandchildren and one more on the way; brothers, Gary (Donna) Caltrider of Menlo and Roger (Lynn) Caltrider of Casey and a host of extended family and friends that will miss her dearly.
