Carolyn was my pastors wife during my college years. She was my prayer warrior and a faithful servant of Christ. She was loyal in service to her church, community, and family. I will miss her big smile and even bigger heart for others. She will be missed greatly! Pastor Harvey, my prayers are with you as you grieve but we rejoice that’s she’s with Jesus where there is no more sickness or pain!

How my life has been blessed to know your mother, wife, and grandmother, Carolyn Miller. God's love exuded from every pore of her body every day of her life. She was a treasure to the people of Sedalia in every walk of life. Of course, Vintage Fashion Apparel and Marketplace was an extension of her and another way to connect with people. Carolyn was a wonderful example of what a Christian woman should be. This whole town will miss her tremendously. I feel blessed to have known her.

So sorry to see that Carolyn lost her battle with cancer. She was such a fun person and so knowledgeable on the fashions of the past. If you missed out on attending one of her fashion shows, you missed a great treat. My deepest sympathy to her family and especially her grandchildren. She was a 'cool' grandma! I hope her family is able to continue with her store. Love shopping there. Always found something neat.
