Carolyn Manning Fraim

 

Carolyn Manning Fraim, 74, of Owensboro, passed away on Friday, December 16, 2022 at Owensboro Health Regional Hospital.  She was born May 23, 1948 in Muhlenburg County to the late Robert J. and Julie L Smith Manning.  She was a retired licensed practical nurse having worked at Hermitage Care and Rehabilitation Center and the Wendell Foster Center.  Carolyn loved her work as an LPN caring for her patients and when any of them died, she felt as though she had lost a member of her family.  She was a member of First Free Will Baptist Church.  She loved anything Elvis, enjoyed making Christmas candy and her family said she always made the holidays seem magical.  Carolyn loved her vacation trips to Daytona Beach every year and also the annual girl trips with her friend Carol Howard.  She loved her many road trips with her grandchildren, was an avid reader and enjoyed her cup of coffee while reading a book.

 

Carolyn was also preceded in death by her husband, Bobby Fraim on July 5, 2007 and a daughter, Candi York on March 3, 1991.
