Carolyn became a member of Perryville Baptist Church in April 1982. Her strong and unwavering faith was instrumental in bringing her daughter-in-law, Becky, back to the Lord. She was a 1961 graduate of Harrodsburg High School and Fugazzi Business College. She worked for the Kentucky Department of Corrections for over 35 years. Additionally, she was a member of Southern States Correctional Association and the Kentucky Council on Crime and Delinquency.

Some of her favorite hobbies included flower and vegetable gardening. She was also an accomplished artist – her home was decorated with many of her own pieces. Vacations were very important to her and her family – Holden Beach, North Carolina, was one of their favorite spots to visit. In her spare time, she also enjoyed line dancing with the Boot Scooters.

In addition to her husband Charlie, Carolyn is survived by her son, Charles Woodrow “Chip” (Becky) Hundley, Jr.; grandsons Xander Hundley, Alyx (Brooke) Bailey; two sisters, Marilyn Milburn of Frankfort, Joan (Paul) Southworth of Russell Springs; and several nieces and nephews.

A celebration of Carolyn’s life will be at 5:00 p.m., Sunday May 6, 2018 at Perryville Baptist Church, with Pastor Doug Davis officiating. A time of visitation will be from 2 – 5:00 p.m. at the church.

Walden Funeral Home in Perryville has been entrusted with her service arrangements.

In lieu of gifts, memorial contributions are suggested to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital or Perryville Baptist Church, Perryville, Kentucky.
