Her Life

Carolyn Sue Quinn was born in Jefferson City, Missouri on December 12, 1942.  She was the youngest of three children.  Her father, Harold W. Quinn, mother, Shirley B. Quinn, and brother, Joseph H. Quinn, all preceded her in death.  She is survived by her sister, Barbara Schuette, of Columbia, Missouri.

Carolyn married Larry A. Old on April 4, 1964, in Southern Boone County.

Carolyn worked 19 years as a registered nurse for Boone Hospital in Columbia, Missouri.  She dedicated the majority of those years to Labor And Delivery where she touched the hearts and lives of many people.  After leaving Boone Hospital Center, she spent her remaining years working in the field of medical review.

In her spare time, she was an avid reader of many genres.   She enjoyed the peace and serenity of her family farm.  Her trips to Las Vegas and riverboat casinos left many slot machines empty.  She was a soccer grandmother who did her very best to never miss a game.

After a tenacious four year battle with cancer, Carolyn left this world peacefully at 10:30 A.M. on March 22, 2012.  She was 69 years old.

She is survived by her husband, Larry A. Old, of Southern Boone County, her daughter, Melissa L. Old, of Ashland, her son, Matthew A. Old, of Hallsville, and her grandson, Ricky Old, of Ashland.
