She was proud to be a member of Henry Hudson Regional School's first graduating class in 1963. Carolyn was a communicant of St. Agnes Church and enjoyed working at Electronic Associates Inc. (EAI) for many years. Carolyn loved to cook and entertain family and friends for big holiday gatherings. She had great memories with neighbors during thanksgiving and the deep fried turkeys. For decades Carolyn and Chet spent vacation and leisure time motorcycling with the Raritan Road Runners, then traveling and camping between the Poconos and Pine Barrens. The "Corders Corner" sign welcomed so many to pig roasts and BBQs, and you could count on Carolyn making the best baked beans and potato salad. Carolyn loved to laugh, and she was fun with which to play games. She was easy going and made people feel welcome. She enjoyed hand-making crafts, blankets, and art projects for her family and friends. Carolyn was a devoted daughter, sister, wife, stepmother, aunt, and friend. In their later years, she was delighted to have had time to spend with her big brother Jim in and around The Villages of Florida.
