CAROLYN REED STOKES
September 11, 1938 ~ April 8, 2017
Carolyn Reed Stokes died peacefully April 8, 2017 at Franciscan Hospice, University Place, WA. She was born September 11, 1938 to Charles and Wilma Stokes in Sioux City, IA. The family moved to Vancouver, WA where she attended Evergreen High School.
Carolyn had a warm heart and kindred soul.
She enjoyed reading, playing Bunco and bowling. She especially looked forward to the weekends at Creed and Faye Cox's house where her sons would romp with their cousins while the adults played poker. Her favorite pastimes were crocheting and quilting. She made beautiful afghans and baby quilts.
Carolyn is survived by her brother, Gary Stokes; sons, Bill Arionus, Chad Arionus and Wade (Aster) Arionus. She was very proud of her 11 grandchildren, 9 great- grandchildren and 3 great-great-grandchildren.
There will be a celebration of life on Thursday, April 13 at 2p.m. Friends and family are invited to attend at Church of Truth, 5555 Ocean Beach HWY, Longview, WA.
