Carolyn was a member of Harvest Time Baptist Church where she played the piano. She was a very talented pianist, playing anything by ear. Carolyn loved spending time with her children, grandchildren, but especially her sisters. Her favorite thing was spending time with the love of her life Allen Hampton, whom she had been married to for 48 years, at her favorite place on earth, her townhouse on the beach in Destin, FL. We are sure now her favorite place is God’s golden shore.
Carolyn was preceded in death by her parents; Marvin & Verna (Smith) Saunders, sister; Lois Saunders Tyler.
She is survived by her husband of 48 years, Allen Hampton, daughter; Tonya Ledford and husband Travis Ledford, son; Robbie Hampton and Lori Hampton Turner, sisters; Deane Sigmon, Shelba Harris, Elaine Wright and Ava Crouch, brother; Jerry Saunders, grandchildren; Tyler & Makayla Ledford, Trey & Grace Hampton, several nieces and nephews.
