Carolyn Sue Hamby, 78, of Louisville, KY passed away Wednesday, July 7, 2021. Carolyn was born September 26, 1942, in Orange, TX to Jack J. Hamby and Annis Godwin Hamby. Her formative years were spent in Orange, where she attended Anderson Elementary, Carr Junior High and Lutcher Stark High School. She received a Degree in Education from North Texas State College (now UNT) in Denton in 1964. After graduation, Carolyn moved to Louisville, Kentucky where she began teaching at Watson Lane Elementary for almost 30 years. Though she spent her working career in Louisville, Carolyn remained in close contact with her family and many friends in Texas. Especially a lifelong group of girlfriends affectionately known as “The Herd”. Carolyn was the current president of the Valley Women’s Club, and a longtime patron of Derby Dinner Playhouse in Clarksville, IN. Carolyn loved to cook and bake; we all have memories of the many delicious events she created for us with her catering company “Miss Charlotte’s Pantry”. Carolyn never forgot to send a card to friends and family for every birthday or holiday. She truly cherished the people in her life by evidence of all the cards and memories she saved from everyone else. She will be missed by so many, but never forgotten. She was preceded in death by her parents, and sisters, Mildred Lucas and Dorothy Mackay, Brother-in-Law Bill Lucas, of Baytown, TX, her best friend Mary Jane Gossett of Louisville, KY. Survivors include her nieces & nephews, Stephen MacKay, Deborah Ebensberger, Christopher Lucas and Cynthia Hill and many great nieces and nephews.
