Carolyn Rix

June 17, 1936 ~ September 25, 2018 (age 82)

Carolyn passed away peacefully on September 25th with family at her side. A proud, native Oregonian, Carolyn was born in Corvallis and graduated from Oregon State University with a degree in education. She taught kindergarten in the Portland Public Schools until her retirement. In her free time, Carolyn enjoyed spending time with her family, life-long friends, and her two Westies. She also relished studying family genealogy and traveling to Alabama and New Jersey for extended visits with her grandchildren.

Carolyn is preceded in death by her husband of more than 50 years, Richard Rix, and is survived by her three daughters (Melanie Luvall, Melissa Young, and Cyndi Salemy), their husbands, and her seven grandchildren. A private memorial will be held at a later date.

In lieu of flowers please consider a donation to the Alzheimer’s Association in her honor.
