Carolyn Hill's faith was her badge of honor and she used it to guide her actions and decisions throughout her lifetime. Carolyn Hill grew up in Chicago, Illinois and graduated from John Marshall High School in 1969. She obtained her Associates of Arts (AA) degree in computer science from Wilbur Wright College in 1972.

From a young age, Carolyn developed a love for people and adventure. She participated in various activities such as Majorettes and the National Honor Society. She spent the bulk of her time enjoying the company of her friends and family. No matter the activity, Carolyn enjoyed bonding with others and having a blast. Carolyn met Larry Carter (Jay Price) at the age of twelve and they were united in Holy Matrimony in 1976.

In 1985 the Carter family moved to Lansing Michigan after Larry accepted a position with WXLA 1170 AM (WQHH 96.5 FM). Carolyn had a well-rounded career that included a number of positions. She worked several years as an insurance agent and a manager at McDonald’s while helping to build Larry’s and her dream of being self-employed business owners. She faithfully supported the endeavors of her spouse by working as the co-owner of the Chronicle News in 1986 and stood as a pillar of strength silently in the background. Carolyn was responsible for the layout and design of the Chronicle from its inception until a few weeks prior to her passing in 2018.

Larry and Carloyn remained married until her transition to a new life on December 4, 2018. Together Larry and Carolyn raised three children: Anastacio Ramos III, William Larry-Carter (preceded her in death) and Yanice Carter.

Carolyn wholeheartedly dedicated her life to service. She was the glue that held the family together and was always found surrounding herself with good people. Carolyn was a beautiful soul with a radiant personality and heart of gold.

She enjoyed reading, cooking, traveling and being the life of the party. Her smile could melt the polar ice caps and it was very rare to find Carolyn without a smile on her face. Her kind and loving spirit touched the masses. Carolyn’s legacy of love will continue to live on through her friends and family. She will be missed but, we are comforted knowing she taught us to love unconditionally, laugh from our bellies, and dance like nobody's watching!
