Carolynne Otto
February 19th, 1963 - Monday, October 28th, 2019

Remembering Carolynne

Carolynne Otto, the daughter of Rudolph and Doris Otto and beloved mother and best friend of Teena passed away Monday, October 28, 2019.

At only the age of 56, her shortened life journey was caused by undefeatable complications caused by Cholangiocarcinoma. Although unbeatable, Carolynne took on this cancerous beast with a vengeance that awed all those around. Her “I can beat this” attitude never wavered, she truly was an inspiration.

Carolynne is survived and loved by her daughters, Stasey and Teena (Jakub Szczotka); granddaughter Alexis; sisters, Katharina Stephens (Danny) and Susanne Nielsen (Paul); nephews, Aaron (Trini), Kyle (Rachel), Shawn and great nieces Saydie and Lyla. She was predeceased by her niece, Brittany and grandparents, Phil and Hilda Virtue and Oma, Johanna Otto.

Carolynne loved to sing along to her favorite 70’s and 80’s music, enjoyed shopping for bargains and running errand for anyone who asked. Her most favorite recent pastimes were playing Skipbo with her dad and daughter Teena, and accompanying her mom to bingo games or a live performances put on for the seniors. Her most cherished memories will be the nature adventures with her family in search of the Forget Me Not Pond, the tallest Rocky Mountain’s waterfall or the oldest Cedar Tree.

Carolynne, your gift of giving, will never be forgotten and the gift of you can never be equaled. Till we meet again.

My most beloved long time friend that I met back in grade 2. You went through the trial of me losing my mother to cancer, the birth of my son and all the other adventures and trials spanning almost 50 years. You will be missed and remembered for all your generous gifts of love to all your friends and family. Until we meet again my dearest friend. Love always, Darla Tonn.
